Martin Kolk

I am a demographer with an interest in most demographic processes (fertility, mortality, union formation, and migration), often with an intergenerational component. I am also interested in if theories of cultural and to a lesser extent genetic evolution can be used to examine patterns in human populations.

I work as researcher at the Stockholm University, Demography Unit, Department of Sociology and Center for the study of cultural evolution. At the Institute for Futures Studies I will develop and examine theories of long term population growth (over multiple generations), and show it interacts with economic development, technological development, and intergenerational transmission of fertility.
