About me

Visiting Professor of Social Epidemiology, especially Children and Adolescents. Principal position as a Professor of Health Equity Studies/Public Health Medicine at the Centre for Health Equity Studies (CHESS), Stockholm University.

My background is in paediatrics and epidemiology and my main research interests include social and life course determinants of health, developmental origins of health and disease, and paediatric and perinatal epidemiology.

Most recently, I have been working as the principal investigator of the Uppsala Birth Cohort Multigenerational Study, and a co-investigator within the Swedish Initiative for Research on Microdata in the Social and Medical Sciences (SIMSAM) Lund project and the Mothers and Their Children’s Health (MaTCH) study at the University of Queensland.

I also coordinate the work of a Swedish partner in the Ageing Trajectories of Health: Longitudinal Opportunities and Synergies (ATHLOS) project and a Research Network on Social Mobility Studies in Sweden.

I very much enjoy teaching and have extensive experience from teaching epidemiology and public health at universities in the United Kingdom, Czech Republic and Sweden. I serve as a member of the steering group for the Swedish Interdisciplinary Graduate School in Register-Based Research (SINGS).
