In my research, I investigate the diffusion, dynamics, and consequences of attitudes. Together with fellow scholars, I explore this topic in three separate projects.
In one project, we investigate the causes and consequences of xenophobic attitudes. In a second project, we examine the religious disaffiliation in Sweden, with a focus on the role social ties on growth dynamics of religious organizations. Thirdly, I am involved in a project investigating sexual attitudes over the past 90 years in Sweden. This is carried out by digitizing a large corpus with the aim to analyze discursive changes in relation to a large set of policy and social changes in Sweden.
Register data management
I maintain the micro-level Swedish population register data that IAS researchers have access to.
