Research areas

My research is primarily revolves around how public sector manager's organizational and social work environment should be designed for increased managerial sustainability. My main research interest is the balance between job demands and resources in managerial work, but also directed to the organizational factors that, in turn, creates these demands and resources, as well as the consequences they have for the individual managers as well as their organization. The Job-demands-resources (JD-R) model constitutes the core theory in most of my research.

At ISM, I work mainly with research and development issues related to the organizational and social work environment of managers as well as employees.

Ongoing Projects

At the moment, I am conducting research in three projects directed to 1) explaining why public sector managers choose to leave or stay in their jobs 2) how an attractive home care service should be organized and 3) polarization and change in working conditions in the Swedish labor market.
