Kort presentation

Min forskning är framförallt kvantitativt orienterad med särskilt fokus på utveckling av GIS- och statistikprogram samt bearbetning av registerdata. Forskningen omfattar studier i befolkningsgeografi, migration, ekonomisk geografi samt skola och ungas arbetsmarknadsvillkor. Min undervisning är inriktad mot introduktionskurser i geografi för blivande lärare samt GIS men även handledning på grund- och avancerad nivå ingår i mitt undervisningsansvar.

Biografi

Position

Member of faculty, senior lecturer in Geography with GIS [Docent och lektor i Geografi med GIS] @ the department of Social and Economic Geography, Uppsala University.

Research profile

My primary research interest is oriented towards Spatial Analysis and GIS, software development and quantitative analysis in population and economic geography with special focus on demography and migration, school choice and labour market opportunities, and more recently also the geography of human interaction on the Internet and through mobile phone usage.

   My software project EquiPop has now (summer 2015) got users in 22 countries (EquiPop is a software-program developed for the calculation of k-nearest neighbourhoods/contexts. The software is specifically designed to work with datasets that contain thousands or millions of observations and offers viable solutions to Knn questions also where large areas and complex geographies are involved.) EquiPop can be downloaded from this webpage.

   I am the administrator of the Uppsala University located PLACE database. PLACE is a Statistics Sweden (SCB) compiled database containing longitudinal and geocoded statistics on individual level between 1990 and 2010. PLACE is used by researchers with an interest oriented towards quantitative research, spatial analysis and GIS.

Teaching and supervision

Being employed as a senior lecturer in Geography and GIS means that much of my teaching is oriented towards methods and theories in GIS. Teaching usually consists of classes in GIS level 1 (15 credits, part of planning program) during autumns and GIS level 2 (15 credits, open to students with GIS level 1 experience - or similar) during spring.

   I supervise student essays on Swedish level C and master’s level – usually in GIS, spatial analysis and population geography. I currently supervise four PhD-students (see below).
