Therese Nilsson's research comprises various aspects of the nexus of inequality, globalization and health in high- and low-income countries. Among other things, she has examined the relationship between liberalization and income inequality, and assessed how the past decades of increasing integration affected life expectancy. She has also empirically examined techniques for measuring inequality when simultaneously including several welfare attributes.
