Her research is focussed on numerical simulations of barred spiral galaxies and interacting galaxies. She has especially studied the stellar orbital structure of the bar, and bar-induced mass relocation. She has also a large interest in popularizing astronomy.

Dr. Sundin received her Ph.D. in 1994 at Göteborg University, under the guidance of the late Björn Sundelius. She has since been working as a lecturer and researcher at Göteborg University. She grew up in Göteborg, and attended Chalmers.
