About me

  • I am a PhD student in the Social Gerontology Sector at Aging Research Center.
    I have an MSc in /Social Research and Social Statistics/ from the University
    of Stirling and a MA (Hons) in/ Sociology with Quantitative Methods /from
    the University of Glasgow. Before starting the PhD I spent two years working
    on the Swedish Panel Study of Living Conditions of the Oldest Old - SWEOLD
    I am affiliated with the National Graduate School on Ageing and Health -
    SWEAH [2] and part of the Social Inequalities in Ageing [3] Network.
    In 2023 I was honoured to receive the Iris-stipedie [4] to attend the
    Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research Summer Program
    [5] in Quantitative Methods of Social Research.


  • The overall aim of my PhD is to investigate various dimensions of the social
    connectedness of older adults.
    The overarching questions are:
    How has the social connectedness of older adults changed over time? And, how
    is the social connectedness of older adults impacted by age-related health


  • I am the course assistant for the Society and Health course in the Psychology
