I defended my PhD thesis at Division of Insurance Medicine, Karolinska Institutet in 2015. My PhD thesis is titled “Sickness absence-subsequent psychiatric morbidity and suicidal behaviour”. I used Swedish national register data, analyzing consequences of being on sickness absence in my PhD studies.

Currently, I am mainly working on the project about sickness absence due to mental disorders and chronic widespread pain by using Swedish twin register. I am also working on studies about sickness absence and disability pension in relation to childbirth. Moreover, I have involved in one project regarding associations between work disability, acute myocardial infarction and common mental disorders. These projects are conducted with national register data.
