Short presentation

This paragraph is not available in English, therefore the Swedish version is shown.

I combine history, ethnography, and formal analysis to study social change and the built environment, with current projects on the landscapes of the Swedish Million Program and the architecture and planning of large new mosques and churches. My 2017 book, The Construction of Equality: Syriac Immigration and the Swedish City (University of Minnesota Press), investigates the transformation of Swedish design norms through the production of new buildings and spatial practices by one migrant group.
