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 program The Rise and Fall of the Industrial City: The Landskrona Population Study (Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, 2016-2022).

I have taught economic history and demography at all levels, but is currently mainly involved in the master's and PhD programs. I also supervise PhD candidates in economic history working in the field of economic demography.
