About me

Ph.D., European University Institute

I am Professor of sociology at Stockholm University. My broad research interests are in the developments of social inequalities across the life course, and particularly the interactions between families and inequalities in education and the labor market. More specifically, I study the causes and consequences of divorce, individuals' and families' attachment to the labour market, and the role of demographic factors and health on socioeconomic attainment and intergenerational inheritance of social inequality. Related to these questions, I run a project on trends and implications of socioeconomic differences in family change (funded by the Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research, FORTE). I  also co-lead (with Fabrizio Bernardi) a work package on these questions in FamiliesAndSocieties.
