Occupational epidemiology
My main area of research is in "occupational epidemiology". Epidemiology is a very useful tool in preventive occupational medicine, especially when epidemiological studies are connected to exposure studies. My major research projects earlier have been in the field of neurotoxicology, where I have concentrated on effects of organic solvents and other petroleum products on the human nervous system.

Developing countries
The past years, I have had the pleasure to co-operate with collegues in developing countries. We have started several studies concerning "Respiratory problems among workers in dusty industries". This topic is very interesting.

Reproduction and work
The past year my interest for reproduction and work has increase. I now participate in two studies on reproduction among hairdressers, and is planning a study related to reproduction and exposure to electromagnetic fields. This is a difficult but very exiting area.

Maritime medicine
Some of my major studies have been performed among seamen exposed to organic solvents during transport on tankers. The past years I have been working with chemical hazards among offshore workers in the petroleum industry.
