About me

  • I am a postdoctoral researcher in the "Ageing & Health Research Group" led by
    Karin Modig at the Institute of Environmental Medicine (IMM), Karolinska
    Institutet. I have a background in demography and worked as a postdoc at the
    Max Planck Institute of Demographic Research and the University of Rostock
    before joining the team at KI. My research focuses on the relationship
    between health & mortality and the consequences of increasing longevity.
    September 2012: Master of Science in Demographie, University of Rostock,
    Rostock, Germany
    July 2013: European Master in Demography, European Doctoral School of
    Demography, Universitat
    Autónoma de Barcelona and Center d’Estudis Demográfics, Barcelona, Spain
    October 2018: Ph.D. (Dr. rer. pol.) in Demography with distinction (summa cum
    laude), University of
    Rostock, Rostock, Germany


  • I am leading a project that investigates individual pathways to death, which
    is financed by the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and
    Welfare (FORTE). The conditions surrounding death have changed over
    the past decades. The average age at death has shifted to higher ages.
    Individual lifespans
    have also become more certain over time. Medical treatment as well as
    assistant technologies
    have not only allowed us to live longer, but also more independent even with
    disabilities. At the
    same time, social inequalities in health and mortality have grown. It is not
    only unclear how all
    these developments altered pathways to death, we also lack a general
    understanding of
    patterns and determinants of this stage of the life course. In the the
    project, we aim to close this gap
    and ask: /how have pathways to death evolved in an era of continuous
    in health and mortality?/
