I am an Associate Professor in Human Geography interested in the housing and residential mobility of older people in different geographical contexts, and in the responsibility of the welfare state to ensure good housing conditions to its population. My research is about where and how older people live, what type of housing they choose and why. In addition I do research on ageing in rural areas and small municipalities.
Additionally I have a research interest in ageing in rural areas and small municipalities. In these areas demography is changing, the proportion of older people increases as the population in general decreases. Issues on ageing in such a geographical context and the particular challenges for these municipalities in caring for an ageing population are in focus in this research.
I have been at the division since 2006, initially as a research associate and then as a senior lecturer. I became an Associate Professor in Human Geography in 2016. I teach at the program in social and cultural analysis and am the supervisor of PhD students in Ageing and Later Life.
