In my research, I investigate various social mechanisms that operate in social systems. I do this in several projects. In one project, we investigate the causes and consequences of xenophobic attitudes. In a second project, we examine religious disaffiliation in Sweden, with a focus on the role of social ties in the growth dynamics of religious organizations. Thirdly, I am involved in a project investigating sexual attitudes over the past 90 years in Sweden using different large-scale text corpora. In my research, I utilize computational techniques, such as text analysis, agent-based modeling, and machine learning to analyze large-scale datasets, including Swedish register data and newspaper data.
Register data management
I maintain the micro-level Swedish population register data that IAS researchers have access to.
Prior to starting my PhD at IAS, I received a bachelor's degree in sociology from Stockholm University and a master's degree in computational social science from Linköping University.
