Research interests
My main interests are comparative social policy and labour market research. Recently, I have been conducting research on social policies in transition countries and developing countries; unemployment insurance, well-being and skill formation; the impact of temporary employment on labour market and demographic careers; and tax policy (especially capital taxation). For a complete list of my publications, see my CV. I became associate professor of Sociology in 2006. In 2010 I became professor of sociology. Since january 2009 I am deputy director at the Swedish Institute for Social Research.
