David Hallman

Lecture, P.h.D in Medicine, associate professor in Occupational health science

Research subject: Arbetshälsovetenskap

David Hallman is an associate professor at the department of occupational health sciences and psychology. He conducts research on physical activity and occupational health, including outcomes such as sick leave, musculoskeletal pain, and cardiovascular function. The goal is to identify healthy patterns of physical activity at work and outside work - to promote recovery, health and the ability to work across different occupational groups. David also conducts research about flexible work, implementation of activity based offices, and psychosocial and physical risk factors for musculoskeletal pain in eldercare workers.

Degree of Master of social science. Main field of study: Psychology
