About me

I am a sociologist and researcher at the Department of Public Health Sciences, Stockholm University. My primary area of research concerns the social determinants of health, particularly individual-level and community-level aspects of social inequalities, and how they are linked to health. A specific interest is on social capital, social relations and networks, and how these domains relate to people’s well-being and health behaviors.

I currently work as researcher in the SMASH project, and investigate health inequalities in individuals with immigrant background. I am also involved in a project on the long-term implications of social trust for health and other societal outcomes.
