PhD student

PhD student at the unit of Occupational Medicine, researching non-standard employment conditions and implications for health and well-being.

About me

After obtaining my Msc degree in Population Health and Health Equity from Stockholm University in 2020, I worked as a research assistant and coordinator at the Institute of Environmental Medicine (IMM) at Karolinska Institutet. Since March 2021 I am a PhD student at the unit of Occupational Medicine at KI.

My general research interests are related to the future of work and associated challenges, and different ways to measure the quality of employment and working conditions.

Research description

In my PhD project I study the link between different types of non-standard employment arrangements and various health and well-being outcomes across several policy contexts, using both quantitative, qualitative and mixed-methods approaches. Some of this research is part of the Precarious Work Research project (PWR)
