Professor of Sociology at the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI), Stockholm University; Official Fellow of Nuffield College, Oxford University; member of the Swedish Royal Academy of Science (KVA).

My research concerns social stratification, e.g., educational inequality, social mobility, poverty, and ethnic integration and inequality. I am the Swedish PI for the international study CILS4EU which studies integration and living conditions among youth in Sweden, Germany, England, and the Netherlands (www.cils4.eu).

At the Institute for Futures Studies I am one of the researchers leaders of the current reseach program's theme The socially sustainable society. I am also the PI for the project Integration of youth in Sweden in a multidimensional perspective (SEMI), which addresses integration of youth in different aspects, namely structural integration (e.g., education, labour market outcomes), social integration (i.a., inter-ethnic relations and networks), and cultural integration (e.g., values, religiosity), as well as psychological adaptation (e.g., wellbeing). In September 2022 I published, together with Carina Mood and Georg Treuter (both previously at IFFS) the book Integration bland unga. En mångkulturell generation växer upp (Makadam förlag).
