About me

PhD Ergonomics, MSc Ergonomics/HTO, Mechanical Engineer.

Research description

I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher and teacher. My research interest concerns Ergonomics/Human Factors, and particularly physical ergonomics, with the aim to optimize human health and performance in the workplace.

Current research concerns:

  • Optimization and design of methods and tools to assess biomechanical exposures, and to make those usable for OSH practitioners and companies. This involves e.g. the Smart Workwear System and the RAMP tool.
  • Design and evaluations of interventions targeting at reducing or optimizing adverse biomechanical exposures.
  • Epidemiological studies the investigates physiological, psychological, psychosocial and organizational factors and their influence on health and performance-related outcomes, such as musculoskeletal disorders, disability and work ability.
  • Developments of Ergonomics standards (SS, EN and ISO) targeting manual handing, workstation design and working postures.

My previous research has involved e.g. the development and evaluation of the RAMP II tool and the RAMP I tool, interventions targeting biomechanical exposure reductions, usage of risk assessment tools among OHS-practitioners and facilitators, barriers for implementing ergonomics measures.

You may contacted be for research collaborations as wells as supervising degree projects concerning Ergonomics/Human Factors.
