I am a Professor of Epidemiology and Global Health with the main research interest in the ageing population, disability, chronic non-communicable diseases, and surveillance of risk factors. I utilise Swedish register data - the Linnaues Database - which is hosted at Umeå University, as well as global data on ageing and adult health.

I am a Professor of Epidemiology and Global Health with the main research interest in the ageing population, disability, chronic non-communicable diseases, and surveillance of risk factors. More specifically, my research deals with health and well being among older people in Sweden (using the Linnaeus database within the Centre for Demographic and Ageing Research) and in low- and middle-income countries (using the WHO SAGE - Study on Adult Health and Ageing). I also focus on the epidemiology of chronic diseases and their risk factors in Sweden (within the interdisciplinary research Västerbotten Intervention Program, a community-based intervention program to reduce cardiovascular disease in Västerbotten County in Sweden since 90s) and in low- and middle-income countries (within the INDEPTH Network). 

I am currently involved in the following research projects: 

  • 2018-2020: Causation and Novel Risk Modelling for Person-Centred Prevention and Control of Cardiovascular Diseases (Funded by Swedish Research Council)
  • 2016-2021: DISLIFE Liveable disabilities: Life courses and opportunity structures across time (Funded by Horizon 2020)
  • 2016-2018: Child health inequalities and place: An exploratory study combining multi-level analyses and micro-qualitative studies (Funded by Wallenberg Foundation)
  • 2014-2020: Paths to Healthy and Active Ageing (Funded by FORTE)
