About me

Charlotta has a master’s degree in gerontology and a bachelor’s degree in public health science with a focus on gender, epidemiology, and health economics. She is a PhD student here at ARC in the social gerontology group.

Research description

She studies how the psychosocial work environment, in particular work stressors, and a variety of coping mechanisms (e.g., social, financial, and personal resources) in late midlife are related to health and mortality in older adulthood.
