He has participated in several international research projects, and published internationally in scholarly journals and books.
Ståhl is an alumni of the Work Disability Prevention CIHR Strategic Training Program at the University of Toronto, where he also served as a mentor after graduation. He has since organized similar international courses in work disability prevention.
