I have written empirical articles focusing on how social and geographical conditions cause different prerequisites and needs for long-distance commuting and social consequences related to long-distance commuting, in terms of gender differences in commuting patterns and earnings, separations and health consequences of commuting.
My current research is mainly related to projects investigating migration strategies among families with young children moving out from a metropolitan area, in relation to the organisation of daily life and geographical context prior and post migration: A good life outside the city,Beyond the city life. Post-migration experiences. The results will add knowledge that can contribute to a relevant basis for future planning of cities, towns and rural areas by providing knowledge of contemporary trends of urbanisation and counter-urbanisation, as well as an understanding of families' experiences of migration and commuting strategies to create a socially sustainable everyday life.
I am a recurrent reviewer for manuscripts regarding commuting, migration and regional development in various international journals (i.e. Urban Studies, Journal of Family Issues, Transportation Research Part A, Journal of Transport Geography, Geografiska annaler, Applied Geography).
I am the coordinator for the master's program in Spatial Planning and Sustainability, course manager for master courses such as; Advanced GIS Analysis, Spatial Analysis and Spatial Planning with a sustainability profile, teaches on the courses Human Geography and Planning Theory, Spatial planning, Spatial planning under insecure conditions and supervises thesis on bachelor and master level.
