Projects per year
I conduct research in the field of public health sciences, focusing on workplace relationships from a health-promoting perspective. I am interested in how good relations in the workplace function, how these can promote good health and what roles they play in interactions between employees, managers and those receiving care.
I began my career at Kristianstad University in 2003 as a recently graduated public health pedagogue, by providing individual health coaching within health-promoting organisations. I then went on to work with health promotion at a group level within occupational healthcare before enrolling in the Master’s Programme in Public Health Sciences at Karolinska Institutet in 2005, a period that awakened my interest in research. I have also worked as a public health pedagogue in education and school development at a strategic social level.
I defended my doctoral thesis, Workplace relationships as health-promoting resources at work, at Lund University in 2019, with an emphasis on wellbeing and workplace relationships from a salutogenic perspective.
I am employed at Kristianstad University as a lecturer in public health sciences. I teach and supervise, primarily in the Study Programme in Public Health and Education on the subject of public health sciences, as well as on methodology courses.
