My research interests include various perspectives on the welfare society in both historical and contemporary settings. The educational system and the conditions for large occupational groups working in this system such as teachers is of certain interest.

In my doctoral thesis I explored the working and living conditions among teachers in the Swedish elementary school during the latter part of the 19th century and earlier part of the 20th century. I primarily studied the teachers that were recruited in a rural environment and the impact this choice of occupation had on their individual lives and familial relationships. I conducted both quantitative and qualitative analyses to identify the teachers' social background and occupational establishment, and to study their everyday life as well as family formation across the life course. Whether and how the working and living conditions differed between groups of teachers (e.g., junior school vs. elementary school teachers) as well as between male and female teachers were of highest interest within my PhD project.
