Research 

My research area includes concrete methods to prevent work-related ill health, and also rehabilitation and return to work in stress-related illness. Most of my research is carried out in collaboration with Stress Rehabilitation, Region Västerbotten.

I have experience in conducting several randomized controlled trials, with both quantitative and qualitative designs.
