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.
