Om mig

PhD, University College London

Caroline Uggla is a postdoctoral researcher at SUDA (Stockholm University Demography Unit), at the Sociology department, Stockholm University. Her research interests lie in human behavioural ecology and evolutionary demography and are based around a life course perspective. With a background in anthropology she has worked both with household survey data from sub-Saharan Africa to explore inequalities in health, and broad population register data from developed countries to examine contextual effects on fertility and mortality. She is also interested in the effects of adult sex ratio skews on demographic outcomes.
