Short presentation

I am a researcher in Political Science at the Department of Government. My research interests include political economy, comparative research on educational systems, welfare state research and political participation.

I am currently head teacher on the C-level methods course in Political Science and in Development Studies. I also supervise bachelor and master level theses.

Research interests

My research interests include political economy, comparative research on educational systems and welfare state research. I finished my PhD thesis "Education, Stratification and Reform: Educational Institutions in Comparative Perspective" in December 2017. In the thesis I studied how educational institutions affect equality and social trust, as well as the political background of educational institutions. I particularly focused on the role of tracking.

I am currently working on a project that studies the relationship between unemployment and political participation, using Swedish register data.
