Research

My research stems from participants' test results from the cognitive test battery used in the longitudinal ageing study "Good Ageing in Skåne". I specifically investigate test administrator effects, that is, if participants' performances are partly attributable to who has tested them.

I also examine birth cohort differences in test scores (Flynn effects) and investigate if participants the same age but born on different years have the same average test scores.
