My research investigates processes linking labour market inequalities, family life and wellbeing using methods for causal inference.
I work as an Professor in Population Studies at the Centre for Demographic and Ageing Research (CEDAR) at Umeå University. My research interests concern processes at the intersection of labour market, family as well as health and well-being of family members. Currently I lead the project "The effects of unemployment on health of family members" (HEALFAM) financed by the ERC Starting Grant (https://sites.google.com/view/healfam/home). This project examines how transitions to unemployment trigger diffusion of ill mental and physical health within families.
