Focus of research

Occupational Diseases

From July 2009 I started my PhD research on recognition and reliable diagnosis of work-related skin and lung diseases in workers and doctors. My first interest is finding out more about workers’ perceptions on illness and workrelatedness and the validity of self-reported work-related illness.
