I am the scientific leader of the Disability and Intimate Partner Violence (DIS-IPV) project a four-year Forte funded project 2019-2023 at Umeå University. This project seeks to contribute knowledge to improve health and social support available to people with disabilities exposed to intimate-partner violence.

I also contribute to the DISTIME project funded by the Marcus Foundation and the Amalia Wallenberg Memorial Fund. I use Sweden's world-unique population databases to carry out quantitative life course analyses and statistical comparisons over time and space.

Additionally, I also participate DISLIFE projects funded by the European Research Council. Using Sweden's national registers, I investigate the impact of disability on health, education, the labour market transition and family formation.

I defended my dissertation in 2015, my dissertation on the Etiology of for celiac disease during childhood.
