The main focus in my research is to study labour market participation among people with chronic diseases, such as depression, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and alcohol use problems.

I also focus on mental disorders among young adults; how marginalisation and social exclusion could be prevented among them.  

The other line of my research is to focus on work disability and associated psychosocial factors at work as well as to develop means to prevent work disability by improving working conditions.

I also collaborate with a large European consortium “Individual-Participant-Data Meta-analysis in Working Populations” (IPD-Work) which produces large-scale meta-analyses on working life and health research.
