Her research is conducted within the projects "Personality and Psychophysiology - the POP-study" and "What are the long-term consequences of having been convicted for a crime in youth".

In her current project she is using Swedish population based registers to explore the association between resting heart rate, IQ, blood pressure and reoffending. She is also working with Swedish population based registers to explore the association between perinatal risk factors and later criminality, with a focus on the effects of measured and unmeasured familial confounding.
