I am an Associate Professor (Docent) in the Department of Political Science and the Centre for European Research (CERGU) at the University of Gothenburg. I completed my Ph.D. in political science at the University of Georgia in 2012. My teaching and research interests include political parties, European politics, representation, and political participation in economically advanced democracies.
Since 2009, I have been a principal investigator with the Chapel Hill Expert Survey research team, which administers web-based surveys to measure the positions of political party leadership throughout Europe on a variety of EU and domestic policy issues. I am also the co-principal investigator of the Swedish Party Membership Survey. This project collects and analyzes information on the political attitudes and behavior of over 10,000 members from seven Swedish political parties.
My research has been published in Comparative Political Studies, European Journal of Political Research, European Union Politics, Journal of Politics, and Party Politics, among other outlets. For more information, please check the pages of this website.
