About me

I am a social demographer who studies the effects of social stratification, social policy and social change on demographic patterns. My research has involved both comparative and micro level analyses of fertility and mortality trends. Much of my past research involved post- communist countries and I have worked extensively on demographic change in Russia in particular. I have also begun to explore the demographic effects of social mobility in Sweden, focusing on both mortality and fertility.
