Biography

I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Stockholm University Demography Unit (SUDA) and a visiting fellow in the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics. I am also an affiliated member of the Department of Social Policy and a member of the LSE population group. Prior to completing my PhD, I worked as a senior researcher in the demographic analysis branch of the Office for National Statistics. Since that time, I have also worked as a consultant on a range of projects, most typically providing advice on research design and analysis for large-scale evaluation projects.

My research focuses on a range of topics, including the demography of migration, families, and fertility. My latest research includes several projects that examine the impact of residential concentration (and segregation) on the demographic life course of immigrants and their descendants in the UK and Sweden. This is in addition to research that explores the demographic consequences of the recent refugee crisis in Europe, as well as several new studies that examine links between demography, development, and reproductive health.

My teaching reflects my broader interests, which include most topics relating to demography, population studies, research design, and social science methods.

I was told I needed to include a photo of myself, so here I am with my father, grandfather, and son (ranked by generation)…
