Om mig

I recently graduated as MSc in Computational Social Science from The Institute for Analytical Sociology. In my research I use various computational methods and approaches with big data to study topics related to inequality, segregation and life-course events. My background is in the field of social welfare, from where I have obtained both a bachelor’s degree and some work experience.

Forskning

As a PhD student at SUDA at the Department of Sociology I study life course and life outcomes using machine learning techniques and population register data. I am continuing along the lines of my master's thesis, where I used longitudinal birth cohort data from The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare to study individual and intergenerational predictors for unemployment in early adulthood, using supervised machine learning algorithms. I also have an affiliation to the project “Understanding society through register-based machine learning” at Linköping University with Maria Brandén. In addition, I work as a research assistant in the project "Childhood psychosocial and environmental predictors of crime and victimization across life" with Amber Beckley.
