Born in Eskilstuna, Sweden, in 1988. Doctoral candidate here at the department of History and Contemporary Studies at Södertörn University since 2013, and also a member of the National Graduate School of Historical Studies (Lund University). I defended my thesis in December, 2018.

In my dissertation, Migration in Seventeenth-century Sweden, I study the importance of migration for the Feudal Swedish society; both how migration was regulated through the migration regime, and the actual migration based on the Älvsborgs lösen records, taxation records which through their age and extent are a unique source of migration history.Exemples of questions that I study are where the work force of manors and castles was recruited, where the neverending influxes of migrants to the urban centers came from, how the feudal landowning regime influenced rural migration patterns, how people moved back and forth across early modern state boundaries, and why so many people ran away from their homes during the early 1600s?

During the spring of 2019, I will be teaching the ancient history part of the History A course.
