PhD student

I am a doctoral student working with the Mining for Meaning research group. We study immigration debate in Sweden using large-scale text corpora and computational text analysis

Briefly about me

My research interests include exploring and explaining inequalities, biases, and discriminatory attitudes we find in textual digital traces and understanding how opinions, beliefs and meanings are shaped. I am generally curious about how computational text analysis methods can be used to answer sociological questions.
