Short presentation

PhD, Assoc. Prof.


My research interests include migration, segregation and marginalised groups. In my work, I interrogate how residential segregation affect individuals´ life courses and also how normative views affects LGBTQ+ individuals. My studies are based on Swedish register data as well as qualitative data. I am on the editorial board of Gender, Place and Culture.

I teach quant. methods and urban planning courses and supervise bachelor and master’s students.
