Associate professor

I do research on sexual harassment and teach at basic and advanced level in gender studies. In addition, I work strategically with research funding at the Department of Thematic Studies.

I work together with Malin Wieslander (IBL) in a research project funded by the Brottsofferfonden (Crime Victims' Fund in Sweden) (2022-2024). Within the project, we investigate how sexual harassment and abuse are experienced, handled and prevented within the police.

In addition, I work together with researchers at Uppsala University in a research project funded by the Swedish Research Council (2022-2024). In the project, we investigate sexual abuse of power, i.e. that a person abuses his position of power in exchange for a sexual act. This is a form of corruption, i.e. abuse of power for personal gain.

I teach the introductory course in gender studies on sexuality and consent, and on various courses within the MA program in gender studies, mainly with a focus on sexual harassment, violence and abuse. I supervise and examine MA essays in gender studies, mainly essays that use qualitative methods.

The department of Thematic Studies's interdisciplinary research tackles important societal issues, and I coordinate the department's strategic work with research funding.
