In my dissertation, I studied gender relations in the Swedish Armed Forces, and what happened to ideas about women, men and soldiers in the transition from a national defense force to an international operational defense. Since then, I have continued to follow the Armed Forces, both with a focus on gender and LGBTQ issues. The two research projects I am currently participating in focus on the gender-neutral conscription that is currently taking shape in Sweden, but also on gender and security work in a broader Nordic context.

Gender in organizations and working life
As a gender researcher with a great interest in organizations, I work with questions about gender relations, norms and working conditions. In my research, I have been particularly interested in how gender and equality are done in male-dominated organizations.
