Emma Cedstrand is a licensed psychologist and PhD student at the Institute of Environmental Medicine at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden. She will be visiting the Center for three months beginning in September, joining us as she finishes her thesis this fall. Emma’s main interest is the psychosocial work environment's effect on health and how organizations can work to reduce psychosocial hazards and help employees thrive at work. She is especially interested in questions on intervention development, implementation design, and evaluation. In addition, Emma and her research group are hopeful that her visit will help build a foundation for potential collaboration with our Center.
