Biografi

Research

I am an Associate Professor in Political Science and a Senior Lecturer in Development Studies at the Department Government at Uppsala University. I am also associated to the Department of Peace and Conflict Research. My research and teaching interests span the field of comparative politics with a particular focus on gender; including the impact of parties, electoral laws, and networks on political recruitment, the role of informal institutions in politics, the explicit gendering of men and masculinities, the adoption of gender equality policies, and the attitudes to and dynamics of violence during conflict. I am presently involved in three different research projects using different types of methods and with empirical foci ranging from large and medium-n analyses to case studies of Myanmar and Cambodia.

 

Teaching

I am a Senior Lecturer in Development Studies. I work with strategic issues regarding the organization of Development Studies and I am developing a new course. I am also responsible for the one-year introductory course for PhD students at the Department of Government. I also teach on the course Gender, Power, and Institutions and supervise both undergraduate and graduate students. I have a long experience of teaching methodology courses.

 

Background

I earned my doctorate in 2010 and my dissertation was entitled Men in Politics. Revisiting Patterns of Gendered Parliamentary Representation in Thailand and Beyond. The dissertation explores how male parliamentary dominance is maintained by investigating the role clientelist networks play in electoral politics in Thailand.

More recent publications include (2016) "Comparing Candidate Selection: A Feminist Institutionalist Approach" (with Meryl Kenny) and "Gender Equality Reforms on an Uneven Playing Field. Candidate Selection and Quota Implementation in Tanzania" (with Pär Zetterberg) in Government & Opposition, "Political Parties and Gender Quota Implementation: The Role of Bureaucratized Candidate Selection Procedures" (with Pär Zetterberg) in Comparative Politics, and (2013 and 2015) the book Gender, Informal Institutions and Political Recruitment. Understanding Male Dominance in Parliamentary Representation (Palgrave Macmillan). 

I am a core group member in the East Asian Peace Program at the Department of Peace and Conflict Research at Uppsala University. I have also been affiliated to the interdisciplinary Centre for Gender Studies at Uppsala University in Sweden. I have been a visiting scholar at the Electoral Integrity Project at the University of Sydney, Australia (2014), the New School for Social Research in New York City, USA (2007), and to Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand (2006).
