About me

I work as a health economist. In 2017, I successfully defended my doctoral thesis at Karolinska Institutet. Following that, I did postdoctoral research at both Karolinska Institutet in Solna and the University of Gävle in Gävle.

In my research, I combine research areas such as psychosocial work environment, health economic evaluations, and health outcome assessments to better understand what factors influence health-related outcomes, work performance, and overall productivity in different occupational groups in both private and public organizations.
