Associated Projects

I work on a range of issues concerning life-course determinants of demographic, socioeconomic and health outcomes, on Swedish register data as well as historical US census data. I am involved in several projects on linking historical US census data and mortality records, with the purpose of better understanding how decisions and events occurring early in life influence longevity. My work on Swedish data similarly covers several topics, including the consequences of parental divorce and subsequent stepfamily formation for the children exposed as well as work on a more historical setting on the socioeconomic and contextual determinants of mortality.
