I am a PhD student in Political Science at Gothenburg University, Sweden, defending my dissertation in September 2023. During my PhD, I did a research stay at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain.

My main research interests include political behavior and gender and politics. I care about structures of discrimination and what motivates people to uphold them.

My dissertation explores backlash against feminism and radical right support. Part of my dissertation work has been published in West European Politics, Frontiers in Political Science and Social Politics.

In my dissertation, I apply quantitative and qualitative methods, including survey data analysis, a survey experiment and interviews, using data from all European Union countries in a comparative approach, as well as Sweden and Germany in single country studies.

My research has been covered by Swedish and international media such as Svenska Dagbladet, The Telegraph, The Independent. I have given interviews to the Swedish national TV broadcaster TV4, as well as the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet’s Instagram and TikTok channels, amongst others.
