Personal profile


  • Sociological perspectives on and explanations of (un)health
  • Work, work hours and work-life balance
  • School choice and school segregation
  • Scientific method with a focus on quantitative methods

In my dissertation work, I investigated different types of social explanations for why some people are more prone than others to suffer from indoor environment-related ill health (the so-called "sick house syndrome"). I then switched tracks and spent some time on secondary school students' school choices and school segregation in Malmö. Today, my research time is mainly devoted to the project "Work less, live more? Voluntary part-time work and consequences for health, well-being and life satisfaction" where I, together with Rebecca Selberg at the Department of Gender Studies, investigate why people voluntarily reduce their working hours and what consequences this has for health and well-being. So with this project, you could say that I have returned to how social contexts and structures affect how we feel in different ways.


In the past, I have mainly devoted myself to teaching quantitative methodology at various levels and have also written course literature on the subject.

I have also worked on developing and coordinating our new bachelor's programme in sociology. Over the years, in addition to my employment at the university, I have had various assignments related to the scientific method, mainly as a "method consultant" in contexts of school development and evaluation work.
