Neda Agahi is an associate professor at the Aging Research Center. She has a background in public health science and a PhD in epidemiological aging research from Karolinska Institutet. Her research concerns different aspects of health behaviors/lifestyle over the life course and inequalities in aging, in subgroups of the population and during certain transitions, focusing on four main areas:
1) late-life alcohol consumption;
2) the transition into retirement;
3) social and behavioral predictors of inequalities in aging; and
4) older people who live alone.

She is also course coordinator for the course Society and Health in the psychology program at Karolinska Institutet.
