I do research on environmental chemical exposure in our home indoor environment, in the EU-project INQUIRE.
My PhD project utilized data in the SELMA-study. This is an on-going longitudinal study of Värmland children that aims to investigate how exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) early in life affects children's health later in life.
The relationship between airway disorders and exposure to a group or EDCs called phthalets are of particular interest in my research.
I teach in Public Health courses such as Health, environment and sustainable development and Epidemiology and Public Health Work. I have also taught Chemistry and Biology courses.
