Many people spend a large part of their time awake at the workplace. Therefore, exposures at the workplace may have a large impact on health. Furthermore, the workplace is a suitable setting for health promotion.

My primary interest is psychosocial working conditions and shift work and their effect on health outcomes. I am also interested in how work, in particular working hours, could be adapted to the individual employee’s personal preferences, and how such an adaption may have beneficial health effects. Among the outcomes that have my interest are dementia, headache, stress and work ability.
