Charlotta Hedberg is Professor in Human geography. Her research focusses on migration and mobility, particularly international migration. Her current research relates to international labour migration, through the example of Thai berry pickers in Sweden, which has been analysed ethnographically from a transnational and translocal perspective.

Hedberg has also performed register based studies, analysing labour market careers and internal migration of international migrants in Sweden.

Her latest research project relates to lifestyle migration through the example of downshifting and voluntary simplicity, including how they affect migration patterns and the relationship to place.

Hedberg has previously been active at the Department of Social and Economic Geography, Uppsala university, and the Department of Human Geography, Stockholm University.
