About me

  • I work as a researcher in the social gerontology group at the Aging Research
    Center (ARC). I have a background in Public Health Science, a PhD in
    Epidemiologic Aging Research from Karolinska Institutet, and since 2017 I am
    associate professor (docent) in Public Health Science at Karolinska
    M.Sc. in Public Health, Karolinska Institutet
    PhD in Epidemiologic Aging Research, Karolinska Institutet
    Docent (associate professor) in Public Health, Karolinska Institutet


  • My research concerns aging from a life course perspective, with a focus on
    lifestyle and socioeconomic factors. Ongoing research is mainly about cohort
    differences in aging, examining differences and similarities between cohorts
    in how lifestyle factors and living conditions change with increasing age.
    I have an ongoing project about how alcohol consumption and drinking
    habits in the older population are affected by various life events, and I am
    also involved in various projects concerning retirement and health.


  • Responsible for Society and Healthy, 4.5 credits, in the Psychology program.
