Adjunct Associate Professor, Docent


In my work I focus on changes of patterns on a societal level depending on large quantities of individual events. Examples of central variables that my explanations are based on are: what governs purchasing decisions, what behaviours are most likely to be punished or what arguments lie behind different values.

With a starting point in these events on an individual level, I make mathematical models that predict societal changes such as changes in the public opinion, or which AI applications that are being spread.

Apart from my position at IAS I am also a research leader at the Institute for Future Studies, on the theme "New Technologies and the future of humanity", and an associate professor of Migration and health at the department of Women's and Children's Health, Uppsala University.
