About me

I am a PhD Student at the Department of Sociology, Stockholm University. Prior to joining the department in Stockholm, I studied the Master degree in International Development studies at the Wageningen University and Research (WUR) in the Netherlands. My studies and participation in different projects as research assistant developed my background in sociology while using ethnographic methods. I have research interests in using qualitative methods on issues concerning integration and social cohesion. In my PhD project I try to investigate the role of hip-hop music in the process of immigrant integration in Sweden, and the construction of belonging in relation to Swedishness. The intention is to understand the relation of hip-hop musicians' input as artists in society and how integration, the creation of recognition, and the sense of belonging in Sweden works for people with a foreign background living in the suburbs of Stockholm.
