I´ve been working as a researcher at Aging Research Center (ARC) since 2004. Today I have a position as Senior Lecturer within the Social Gerontology Sector. Before coming to ARC, I was working as a Junior Lecturer at the Swedish Institute for Social Research at Stockholm University. This was also where I conducted my PhD studies in Sociology. As of 2009 I´m an Associate Professor in Sociology.
Besides doing research, my work at ARC entails being the Principal Investigator for the SWEdish Panel Study of Living Conditions of the Oldest OLD (SWEOLD). SWEOLD is a longitudinal, nationally representative, interview survey of the oldest old in Sweden.

My scientific research within the age and ageing area is wide-ranging and can be categorized within the following areas: Health status and health changes; social determinants of health and health inequalities; social and economic living conditions; social participation and loneliness; and intergenerational transfers and support. A further focus of my research is the methodological challenges involved in studying the oldest old.
