    I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Sociology as a member of the UNITRAN project, which is funded by the EU.  My research interests include fertility behavior, parental investments in children, and survival analysis.  My previous work has focused on socioeconomic inequality during the historical declines of fertility and mortality in Stockholm in the 19th and 20th centuries, and my current research investigates the role of intergenerational transfers of time and preferences on the fertility behavior of modern populations as well as the implications of those transfers for individuals being born. My research has utilized a wide array of datasources, such as historical and modern registers, full-count censuses, and longitudinal nationally representative surveys. My recent publications can be found in the leading history journals, the Economic History Review and the European Review of Economic History.

    Primary fields of research
