About me

I am a PhD candidate in Sociology within the GENPARENT project at the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI). I have a Master's degree in Gender studies from Uppsala University. 


My research project focuses on lesbian couple’s transitions from partners to parents. In particular, I am interested in the reasoning and the realization of the division of paid work, housework and care related tasks. I will do in-depth interviews with lesbian couples who are expecting and having their first child. Hence, I use a longitudinal approach in order to follow how the division of care and labor unfolds over time, from pregnancy until both partners are back at work.
