About me

She is working on the project ‘The demographic imprint of social mobility: Fertility and mortality in Sweden’ (Forte). Anna has a background in Sociology and has worked at Chess, and at Karolinska Institutet where she received her PhD on psychiatric sickness absence in 2013.

Anna is interested in questions concerning stratification, marginalization, segregation/integration and its relation with health/mortality. Her interest also lies in other issues related to the labor market, such as gender segregation at workplaces and working conditions.
