About Matilda Karlsson


My academic education has been interdisciplinary. I have a bachelor degree in Global Studies and a masters degree in Global Health. Apart from this I have also studied french and gender studies at the faculty of humanities, University of Gothenburg.

My research interest centers around equity, health and well-being, and how we can develop and implement health promoting and preventive change strategies and interventions.
