About me

  • I defended my thesis "Trends in Population Health in an Era of Rising
    Longevity [1]" in 2022. Since then I have been working in different projects
    related to health in old age. I have a background in epidemiology and
    demography and work mainly with Swedish register data.

  • My work concerns the changing mortality and morbidity patterns in the ageing
    Swedish population integrating both epidemiological and demographical
    approaches. I examine secular trends in disease incidence and mortality, as
    well as health care consumption among the old. My work builds upon national
    population registers and emphasizes heterogeneity within the population.
    Specific research interests include osteoporotic hip fractures,
    cardiovascular diseases, consequences of Covid-19, and sociodemographic
    inequalities. In addition, I worked on a number of studies examining the
    importance of adult children for health and mortality in old age.
