I study childhood characteristics, resources, health and educational achievements, as well as the meaning of family formation and characteristics for individual life courses.

I primarily work with Swedish register data in interdisciplinary collaborations. I am part of the Research data group at Umeå University, and also affiliated with Swedish National Data Service (SND) as a domain specialist for register data. I am also part of the steering group for Umeå SIMSAM lab.

My work has recently been published in Acta Sociologica, Scandinavian Journal of Public Health, BMC Public Health and PLoS ONE.
