Research interests

My research focuses on child development, fatherhood and the linkages between gender, family and work in post-industrialized societies. I am currently overseeing the Gothenburg Longitudinal Developmental Study (GoLD), a 30-year prospective longitudinal study of Swedish participants and their families who we have followed from age one until recently when they were 29 years old (together with Michael E. Lamb & Ann Frisén). I am also overseeing the project, The Impact of the Workplace on Men’s Involvement with Children. Since 1993, I have performed a series of studies investigating the dynamic linkages between gender equity, work-family balance and organizational change, together with Linda Haas. Another project concerns postnatal depression, anxiety. and stress in fathers.
