My research investigates processes linking labour market inequalities, family life and wellbeing using methods for causal inference.
I work as an Associate Professor at the Department of Sociology and Center 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. This project examines how transitions to unemployment trigger diffusion of ill mental and physical health within families. I am also the principal investigator of the project titled "When and where is it possible for young workers to escape from low-wage jobs?" financed by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskaprådet).
