Associate Professor, Docent

My research area is health economics with focus on health economic assessments. 

Presentation

I have a special interest in the measurement of the effects of health care in terms of quality-of-life. Participation in projects about, for example, chronic pain in an elderly population, and employers’ measures in order to get sick-listed employees back to work is also part of my remit. Teaching mainly comprises acting as tutor for student groups on the HEL-1 course and the first semester of the doctors’ education.

Research projects

  • Pain among people 65 years and older
  • Employers measures for the return to work of sick-listed employees
  • Health states worse than dead? (negative QALY-weights)
  • Early treatment of rheumatoid arthritis
  • Intralymphatic immunotherapy for treating allergies
  • Brief admission on demand as crisis intervention for individuals with self-harm behavior

Education

  • Master’s degree in economics 1995
  • PhD 2001
