Research description

Alcohol and drug epidemiological research.

I am an Associate Professor of Public Health Science and currently PI of the program "Alcohol, tobacco and drug use: From predictors to policy and practice" funded by the Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research. My research focuses on identifying predictors of adolescent alcohol and drug use, as well as on examining the long term consequences of use. 

I am also involved in the Global Burden of Disease project, collecting and presenting alcohol and drug consumption data for Sweden, doing comparative studies between countries, and working in close collaboration with the Institute of Population Health Metrics, Seattle, US and with several alcohol and drug researchers in e.g. the Nordic countries.
