Research interests

My research aim is to contribute to the knowledge of how and to what extent public institutions and scientific knowledge impacted health and prosperity and inequality in these outcomes, with an example of Denmark and Sweden. A truly long-term perspective, in particular a life-course approach, will receive a heavy focus in my research. I intend to exploit Scandinavian countries as a venue for causal investigations about the significance of social reforms and medical innovations.
