I am Associate Professor of Human and Economic Geography. I teach mainly in Tourism Studies and partly in Development & International Cooperation, and Environmental Studies. My doctoral thesis (Abbasian, 2003) has dealt with immigrant womens self-employment and integration into Swedish society. I have also a wide experience of interactive research in various research and development projects in Sweden. In these projects I have studied among others mechanisms behind involuntary part time work in Sweden; womens start of businesses within Tourism and Experience industries; Incentives for new industries- Design, Experiences, Cultural Heritage; and Co-production of parenting-support services. My research interests include different issues related to tourism, plus self-entrepreneurship among women and immigrants.
