Growing into voting

My doctoral thesis tackles the question of turnout among young people. It will have the form of a compilation thesis, a compilation of four articles. All four articles will use information on voter turnout from electoral rolls in combination with register data.

New in politics

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.

Teaching

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.
