I have a background in Public Health Science and received my PhD in Epidemiologic Aging Research at Karolinska Institutet in 2008. Currently, I work as an assistant professor at the Aging Research Center (ARC). I am also involved in projects at the Stockholm Gerontology Research Center (Stockholms läns Äldrecentrum), particularly reports concerning lifestyle and public health.
I study aging from a life course perspective, focusing on lifestyle and socioeconomic factors. My ongoing research mainly concerns alcohol consumption in the older population and how drinking habits are affected by the transition to retirement. Other research interests are differential vulnerability and the association between lifestyle factors and health in different socioeconomic groups, as well as how different cohorts of older individuals differ with regard to lifestyle factors and other living conditions.
