Personal profile


I am, since 2010, professor of Economic History, specializing in Economic Demography, and Director of the Center for Economic Demography. My research deals with historical and contemporary economic demography covering mortality, fertility, migration, marriage and social mobility. It has been published in leading demography and economic history journals. Most of my research involves longitudinal micro-level data and I am currently PI for the Scanian Economic-Demographic Database, as well as for the research environment Socioeconomic Segregation (funded by the Swedish Research Council, 2023-2029).

I have taught economic history and demography at all levels, and currently teach population-related courses at Bachelor and Master levels. I also supervise PhD candidates in economic history working in the field of economic demography.
