About me

I am lecturer in Korean Studies at the Department of Asian, Middle Eastern and Turkish Studies. I have held this position at Stockholm University since 1987.


I have been teaching courses and supervised students on Bachelor level at Stockholm University since 1988. Courses taught include mainly Korean language on all levels but also Korean history, society, politics, economics and inter-Korean relations. 


I received my PhD at Stockholm University in 1996 with the dissertation Shipbuilding in South Korea: A Comparative Study. It investigates what enabled the country to become a major shipbuilder since the 1970s and how it has maintained this position since. 

After my dissertation, my research has focused on modern South Korean politics and inter-Korean politics. My present research project investigates the outcome of South Korea’s UN membership since 1991 on the basis of what the predictions were and applying international relations theory.
