Research

My studies focus on work and living environments, psychosocial risks, and behaviors as determinants of health and longevity from a life-course perspective. I have experience in working with large longitudinal datasets and have a strong record of research collaboration both nationally and internationally. My recent research has contributed to the understanding of the effects of social, built and natural neighborhoods on cardiovascular health.
