I research and teach in global health and health economics.
I am an associate professor in health economics and docent in global health. My research focuses on the evaluation of the cost effectiveness and equity effects of multisectoral, complex public health interventions globally and in Sweden.
I have three ongoing Swedish projects: a cluster RCT of a school-based tobacco prevention programme (collaboration with Karoliska Institute); a health economic and equity analysis of the Salut child health promotion programme (collaboration with Uppsala University); and the development of a decision-support tool for municipalities on social inclusion interventions (collaboration with Dept of Social Work, UmU).
My current projects receive funding from the Swedish Public Health Institute, the Swedish Research Council for Health and Welfare (FORTE), and the private foundation Skandia Idéer för livet.
My research in global health is conducted mainly through PhD supervision (with current projects in Ecuador and Indonesia) and collaboration with the UCL Institute for Global Health, where I am honorary senior research associate.
I coordinate Theme Equity in Health, a medical faculty thematic space for senior researchers and doctoral students.
I have course responsibility for Health Economic Theory (7.5 ECTS), a second-year master's course given in collaboration with Economics.
I also teach on Equity and Health (3.5 ECTS), Advanced Topics in Health Economic Evalution Methods (7.5 ECTS), and Global Health for the Health Sciences.
Each year I supervise a number of theses by students taking our Master's Programme in Public Health with a Specialization in Health Economics.
