I am a sociologist working at the Department of Human Geography at Stockholm University. My research interests include inter-group attitudes and the role of contextual effects in attitude formation and political behaviour. I received my DPhil from Nuffield College, Oxford University in 2016. In my doctoral dissertation I looked at determinants of involvement in extreme forms of political action: contextual factors associated with participation in 2011 London riots and membership in the British National Party.
Following my doctoral studies, I have been working with Swedish register data to study the impact of diversity on radical right-wing candidacy, career trajectories of radical right-wing candidates, typology of Swedish neighbourhoods, geographical polarization in Sweden and the impact of COVID-19 on residential mobility patterns.
I have been teaching on the following courses at SU:
- Undergraduate and masters thesis supervision in Human Geography & Planning
- Masters thesis supervison, Demography
- Social Science Methods & Research Design, Human Geography & Planning
- Quntitative Methods, Human Geography
- GIS and spatial analysis
