PhD title: Reproductive histories, social mobility and health: Women’s health in a life course perspective

PhD thesis summary

My main research interest is in the field of women’ health and life course epidemiology. My PhD project focuses on the early life factors (e.g. birth characteristics, reproductive and socioeconomic factors) and their associations with women’s health (i.e. endometriosis and perimenopausal disorders) in a life course perspective. For instance, I investigate developmental origins of perimenopausal disorders and other outcomes relevant for women’s health and ageing. These studies are based on the Uppsala Birth Cohort Multigenerational Study (which is a part of the ATHLOS project) and on linkages of data from multiple Swedish population-based registers.
