About me

I defended my doctoral thesis in 2017 at Karolinska Institutet. In 2018, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Karolinska Institutet, Solna, and in 2019 at the University of Gävle, Gävle. My research is about health and labour economics. 

Research description

My research interest is about the relationship between the work environment and health and productivity. The current research is about the effects of going to work when one should have stayed home because of ill health, so-called sickness presenteeism. The project aims to find out more about health, sickness presence and sickness absence, and productivity loss from a health economic perspective. I also participate in a project "Work Environment and Productivity" among public employees where the purpose is to implement some of the most well-documented research results from the effect of the work environment on objective productivity. The knowledge from my project could provide a better understanding of how ill-health, working conditions, sickness presence, sickness absence, and productivity are connected.
