Associate Professor

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

I work together with Malin Wieslander (IBL) in three research projects about sexual harassment within the Swedish Police Force. In addition, I work together with researchers at Uppsala University in a research project about sexual abuse of power, i.e. that a person abuses their position of power in exchange for sexual services. This is a form of corruption, i.e. abuse of power for personal gain.

I teach at the introductory course in gender studies on sexuality and consent, and at the MA program in gender studies, mainly on sexual harassment, violence and abuse. I supervise and examine MA theses in gender studies, mainly with students that use qualitative methods.

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