Senior research specialist

About me

I am an associate professor in the social gerontology group at the Aging Research Center, a collaboration between Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm university.

Research description

My research interests cover the health and social care system for older people, social policy implications of the ageing population, and how this will affect future needs and demands for health and social care services. Currently, I am the PI of the Forte-funded project “Why do older people seek emergency care? Causes, circumstances and explanations”.

I am involved in several international networks and international comparative studies on long-term care for older people. I am also the Swedish non-governmental expert on long-term care in the European Social Policy Network for the European Commission.
