About me

I am a PhD student in the Social Gerontology Sector at Aging Research Center. I have an MSc in Social Research and Social Statistics from the University of Stirling and a MA (Hons) in Sociology with Quantitative Methods from the University of Glasgow. Before starting the PhD I spent two years working on the Swedish Panel Study of Living Conditions of the Oldest Old - SWEOLD.

I am affiliated with the National Graduate School on Ageing and Health - SWEAH and part of the Social Inequalities in Ageing Network.

Research description

The overall aim of my PhD is to investigate various dimensions of the social connectedness of older adults.

The overarching questions are: How has the social connectedness of older adults changed over time? And, how is the social connectedness of older adults impacted by age-related health decline?

Teaching portfolio

I am the course assistant for the Society and Health course in the Psychology program.
