About Caroline Hasselgren

Background
Since January 2020, Caroline is a postdoctoral fellow affiliated with the interdisciplinary research center AgeCap - Centre for Aging & Health (www.agecap.gu.se). She defended her doctoral thesis, “Inequity in Mind. On the Social and Genetic Risk Factors of Dementia and Their Interactions” in the fall of 2019. In brief, the thesis sought to further explain the occurrence of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias by studying the long-term impact of class- and gender-based inequities as well as the extent to which they potentially moderate genetic risk. Caroline also has a MA in sociology (2014) and a BA in human resource management and labour relations (2012).

Research interests
• Living conditions and health in old age
• Welfare and social stratification
• Medical sociology
• Health inequity
• Quantitative methods

Ongoing research
Caroline's current research concerns health and working-/living conditions in old ages, with a particular focus on the long-term effects of economic and social inequality.

Teaching
Caroline mainly teaches courses that deal with research methodology and more specifically quantitative methodology/statistics.
