Current research and teaching

My research interests are broadly concerned with welfare politics and family relations. I have for example studied gender relations and the historical development of Swedish labour market- and family policies, lone mothers strategies to combine paid work and family life, the development of parenting support policies, and, more recently, older female workers wellbeing in the labour market.

My teaching subjects include historical sociology, qualitative methods, social policy and gender studies.

I am currently serving as Chair for the Swedish Sociological Association (https://www.sverigessociologforbund.se).

During fall 2022, I spend most of my time at the Department of International Economic, Government and Business, Copenhagen Business School.
