About me

I am a PhD student in sociological demography at Stockholm University Demography Unit, starting in June 2018. I have a master’s degree in demography from Stockholm University (2017) and a bachelor’s degree in political science from Uppsala University (2012).


My dissertation project focuses on fertility patterns and family trajectories among immigrants and their descendants in Sweden. Using data from population registers and the Swedish Generations and Gender Survey, I both compare immigrants and children of immigrants to Swedes without an immigrant background and study differences among immigrants and their children by factors such as national origin, ethno-linguistic identity, and the reason for migration (i.e. work, family formation/reunification, asylum, etc.).
