Research

My research focuses in Historical Demography and primarily contributes to the debates on period and early-life determinants of living standards, health and wellbeing. It uses detailed micro-level data to explain macro-level processes, understand societies and societal developments across time and to link the past to the present.

4. Briefly describe development work in education – renewal of curriculum and/or pedagogical development:

I am working on improving half of the course “Populations and Living Standards” by shortening the sections on the impact of short-term economic stress on demographic outcomes, to focus on main patterns and findings, and by adding sections on the life-course determinants of living standards.

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

Currently I am working on the planning and development of a new course on data management for second year Demography master students and for PhD students, which will be taught as a tutorial. The course will be given in the first part of the Spring semester.  

 

I am currently involved on the planning of a new intensive research course, which will be given at the Centre for Economic Demography/ Department of Economic History to PhD students and researchers from different countries. As in previous years, the course will cover theories and methods in historical demography and will be hands-on. The main change that will be incorporated to the course is the focus also on developing countries and on adopting for such contexts theories and methods to measure living standards that have so far primarily been used for historical European Populations.
