Research

There are several scientific indications that increasing heat exposure is going to become the next big societal and scientific challenge. The earth’s climate is changing in an accelerating pace and the link between climate change and increasing average global temperature is well established. I am focusing on the link between increasing heat and health, in particular occupational health and labour productivity. The research focus is on evaluation of the current methods and tools for assessing work in hot environments, both indoor and outdoor, and analysis of local sustainable solutions to increasing heat.
