My dissertation, Outsiders and Others, revolves around queer friendships in novels by German-language author Hermann Hesse (1877–1962). My research interests include queer theory and representations of masculinity, animality, functionality, and race in literature and other media.

Previously I’ve had a career as a contemporary dancer and choreographer. I’ve also worked within theatre as a prompter and assistant director.

In 2014 I was awarded second place in Umeå novellpris, Sweden's biggest competition for short stories, and in the spring of 2017, I debuted as a novelist.
