Lena DahlbergLena Dahlberg took up a post as Guest Researcher at the Aging Research Center in September 2012, and is a member of the Social Gerontology group. She is an Associate Professor in social work and was awarded a PhD in Political Science from Stockholm University in 2004. Her thesis concerned interaction between the welfare state and voluntary organisations in supporting informal carers of older people. Lena’s current research interests include social exclusion and loneliness in old age, and inequalities in access to formal and informal care. Lena is also a Lecturer at Dalarna University (2009-). Previously, she has been based at Stockholm Gerontology Research Center (1994-1995), Dalarna Research Institute (1995-2004, 2009-2012) and Sheffield Hallam University, United Kingdom (2004-2009).
