Before taking up my current position, I was a senior faculty administrator at the Office for science and technology at Uppsala university. I have previously been a tenured lecturer at Åbo Akademi and a tenured senior lecturer at Uppsala University, Campus Gotland. After finishing my PhD in philosophy, I held an international postdoctoral fellowship from the Swedish Research Council, during which I did research at the University of Helsinki. I was also a research fellow at the University of Queensland, Australia. Part of my graduate studies were done at Universität Augsburg and at the Georgia Augusta in Göttingen. I'm an honorary research fellow in philosophy at the University of Queensland, Australia.

PhD in philosophy from Uppsala University, PhD in theoretical computer science from Åbo Akademi; title of docent in philosophy awarded by the University of Helsinki.
