Research:
My research is in public health with a particular focus on occupational health, workplace mental health, risk assessments, and absenteeism and presenteeism across different sectors. I am particularly interested in identifying and understanding work-specific risk factors related to physical and mental health while considering other social determinants of health. In doing so, I commonly use quantitative (including meta-analyses) and qualitative methods and welcome collaborating amongst various disciplines to improve workers' lives. 

I would welcome supporting the research of graduate students.
