Wallenberg Scholars is a programme designed to support and encourage some of the most successful researchers at Swedish universities. These funds provides an opportunity for Lotta to invest in bolder and more long-term projects and hopefully will be able get an even better international impact for her research.

Lotta has previously described the Arctic dimension of her research like this:

"I make use of demographic data and methods to gain knowledge about gendered and socio-economic issues that confronted vulnerable layers of historical populations in northern Sweden, such as paupers, offenders and disabled people, and to some extent also indigenous individuals, i.e. the Sami."

More information about Lottas research can be found on the Wallenberg Foundation website.
