I have Ph.D. in political science from Linköping University and I will work as a postdoc at Centre for Municipal Studies, Linköping University from March 2019 until March 2021. I am also an affiliated researcher at the Research Institute of Industrial Economics (IFN). During my postdoc will be on leave from my employment at Statistics Sweden. My research interests include political participation, social trust and public corruption. 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.
