About me

I am a doctoral student at the Dep. of Sociology at SU. I have a general interest in trying to understand social interaction. Hence all types of social theories and methods to gain knowledge about what “people are doing”, “how they do it” and “why they do it” are of great interest to me. In my research I use field theory and sociological theories about markets to try to make sense of what going on in Stockholm’s housing market. The method I use can best be described as ethnographic.



My thesis BUYING HOUSING AND SELLING A HOME- The real estate market in Stockholm from the viewpoint of actors, is a monograph that is expected to be defended in autumn of 2016.

Professor Patrik Aspers (Uppsala University) is my main supervisor and Magnus Bygren (Stockholm University) is my second supervisor. My work is founded by Vetenskapsrådet.

Book chapter

Marknader (2014). (co-written with Patrik Aspers) in Ekonomisk sociologi : en introduktion / Reza Azarian, Adel Daoud och Bengt Larsson (red.)
