Main research or teaching areas
- Social policy
Current research and teaching
My research centres on social policy, family, population and gender. One research project explores how family and intimate relations are renegotiated in the context of a shortage of women in China. The other research project investigates the politics around parental support in Sweden. I teach at both first and second cycle courses on topics such as gender, development, population, social policy and methodology, and also convene the thesis course in sociology for BIDS students.
