About Sofie Fredriksson

Licensed audiologist, graduated in 2008 from the audiology program and took a master's degree in audiology in 2011, both at the University of Gothenburg. Finished my PhD in June 2018 at Occupational and Environmental Medicine, University of Gothenburg, with the dissertation: "Hearing-related symptoms among women - Occurrence and risk in relation to occupational noise and stressful working conditions".

Currently working as a researcher (postdoc) at Occupational and Environmental Medicine in the research group Sound Environment and Health (link). My research mainly concerns the area of ​​hearing and health in relation to noise and psychosocial stress exposure at work. The focus is on female-dominated workplaces in school and health care and touches on gender aspects in the field of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.

In addition to research, I have taught at the Audionom program since 2011, mainly in audiological diagnostics and linguistics and phonetics. Today I am involved as an external lecturer. I have also, together with the audiology clinic in the region, run a project towards implementing Equal Care in clinics and education. I currently work 20-40% in the audiology clinic at Sahlgrenska with hearing and balance diagnostics.

Together with a number of audiologist doctoral students in Sweden, I have also been involved in starting up and running the PhD-Aud Network.
