As a social scientist working in health research, most of my research concern how the population health is developing over time, and how health problems are distributed between different groups in the population. I´m currently working on a postdoc-project on socioeconomic disparities in health among the oldest old in Sweden. I´m also engaged in research on general health trends among older adults, health among centenarians, and the accumulation and duration of welfare problems in later life.
