I am an Associate Professor in Occupational and Environmental Medicine. I am a Research Group Leader and the Deputy Head of Unit of the Unit of Occupational Medicine at the Institute of Environmental Medicine, Karolinska Institutet. I study joint effects of exposure in Occupational and Environmental settings in relation to health effects. My focus however, is on noise, air pollution, vibrations and chemicals in the work and living environment in relation to health.
