I am a PhD candidate in political science writing my dissertation within the project From the margins to the mainstream: Populist radical right parties and government formation in Europe. My research focuses on how political parties act in relation to the radical right, with a particular focus on policy adaptation and coalition formation at the Swedish national and local levels

From August 2016 to June 2017 I am a visiting fellow at the Swedish Parliament.
