My research focus is on how people's models of reality affect their behavior in organizations and also in relation to the external environment. In my studies of working life and health, I include factors such as communication, group dynamics, leadership, as well as oganizational and social structures. The areas I have recently studied is how transition to flex offices affects the work environment, health and productivity.

In terms of external environment and climate change, I have looked at how staff in elderly care perceives the effects of heat waves on older people and what the public sees as negative consequences of climate change.

I have taught a number of university programs such as the Medical Program, International Crisis and Conflict Program, and the Psychology Program to name a few.

I also take expert assignments where I investigate and lecture on environmental psychology, psychosocial work environment, leadership and health. I have had assignments for Örnsköldsvik Municipality, Boliden Aitik, The Swedish Environmental Court and FOI, Swedish Defence Research Agency.
