About me

  • I am affiliated to the Social gerontology group at Aging Research Center, a
    research center in joint collaboration between Karolinska Institutet and
    Stockholm University. I have a PhD in Sociology from Stockholm University
    and a background in Sociology and Statistics. I am currently working as a
    postdoctoral research fellow at Linköping University, but is still involved
    in research project at ARC.
    • PhD, Sociology, Stockholm University.


  • My research is mainly about inequality in later life between different groups
    in the society. I am interested in patterns of living conditions, how these
    living conditions changes over time and the impact of these differences for
    quality of life, health and longevity.
    In addition, I have a special interest in methodological challenges in
    population studies about older people’s health and living conditions. From
    an inequality perspective, it is essential that all people are represented in
    studies used for research and political decisions. I mainly work with large
    population studies and register data were we look for regularities and
    associations between different factors.
