I work at the Centre for Research on Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CFBUPH) at Karlstad University. Our vision at the CFBUPH is to contribute to improving mental health and wellbeing of young people through excellent and interdisciplinary research focused on broader social and economic living conditions. CFBUPH is mainly funded by external grants.
My research focuses on family structure and children's wellbeing.
I teach sociology and demography at Stockholm University and the Red Cross University College.
