Biography

Dr. Greiner received an MSc in Psychology from the Technical University Berlin, her Masters in Public Health and her PhD in Epidemiology from the University of California Berkeley and her Dr. rer.med.habil from the University of Greifswald (Germany). In an attempt to 'marry' her two educational disciplines epidemiology and occupational psychology Dr. Greiner focussed her research on the impact of working conditions on physical and mental health, injury and safety in the working population. Specifically she created an evidence base on the role of work characteristics on cardiovascular risk factors, cardiovascular health, musculoskeletal disorders, mental health and health inequalities in Germany, the United States, the UK and Ireland. She participated in an international study on working conditions, stress and fatigue in aviation workers which involved 140 countries worldwide. She headed a project team that evaluated the impact of the Irish Workplace Smoking Ban on respiratory health, smoking and risk perception of smoking in bar workers and the Irish population, hereby providing evidence for international policy makers considering the introduction of similar legislation in their country. Currently she is a Co-PI on a project that investigates psychiatric, psychosocial and workplace factors associated with suicide and self-harm in Ireland. Her internationally recognised work involved the development of methods based on observational job analysis for the objective measurement of psychosocial work conditions. Dr Greiner is a member of the executive committee of the European Academy of Occupational Health Psychology. She published her research in international peer-reviewed journals and presented at numerous major national and international conferences.

Research Interest

Dr. Greiner's main interest lies in the area of social inequalities in health and investigation of the contribution of working conditions, in particular psychosocial working conditions and work organisational factors, in explaining variation in physical and mental health and health behaviours in the population. My second interest is in workplace tobacco control and its effects on health and smoking behaviour in the population.

Teaching Interests
