I have Ph.D. in political science from Linköping University and I employed as an associate senior lecturer at Centre for Local Government Studies, Linköping University . I am also an affiliated researcher at the Research Institute of Industrial Economics (IFN). My research interests include political participation, social trust, public corruption and political polarization. Statistical methods and visualization of data are also among my interests. I have experience of using SAS, Python and SPSS, but I primarily use Stata and R.

My doctoral thesis addresses the issues of turnout and habitual voting. It is a compilation thesis with an introduction and four articles. All the studies are based on information on voter turnout from electoral rolls in combination with register data.
New in politics is a research project with the purpose of studying expectations and experiences among local politicians. The analyses are based on a panel survey targeting a sample of those who ran for office in the 2014 Swedish municipal elections. This sample will be followed through the political term 2014-2018.
I mainly teach quantitative methods at undergraduate level and as a part of the master’s program in political science at Linköping University, where I also supervise undergraduate students.
