Research

My research focuses largely on how men and women allocate their time between the household and labor market. Outcomes which I focus on include: the household division of labour and how it is impacted by parenthood; how working couples spend time together and invest time in their children; the division of paid labour; and caregiving responsibilities over the life course. Another research interest of mine is sleep, including how it is influenced by work- and family-responsibilities.

Teaching

I teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels, covering topics such as family demography, economic change in post-war Sweden, the demographic transition, and family and work in an international perspective.

7. Additional work in education (e.g. planning, implementation, and pedagogical leadership)


Collaborate with teachers of Advanced topics demography courses, in order to learn from each others’ experiences with teaching these tutorial-style courses. Through our group discussions, I adapted the course somewhat in 2018, compared with 2017, to incorporate best-practices for working with this specific course format. 

 

 

8. Briefly describe your work with IT-supported teaching and learning 

 

I use live@lund for all communication with students, including posting of lectures, assignments, examination and seminar instructions, submitting of assignments, etc. However, in the tutorial-style courses, we use email as the primary communication method, as it works better for having more running dialogue with the small group of students. 

 

 

9. Production of cases, publications on teaching and learning, teaching materials and textbooks
