My research is centered on issues of accountability and organizing comparing civil society in a broad sense, and philanthropy specifically, to public administration. I also make cross-national comparisons across welfare regimes. Methodologically I work mainly with qualitative interviews and text analysis of social media interactions. My work is focused on two diverse yet (for me) equally intriguing policy areas; migration policy and higher education policy, focusing on research funding.

I have a PhD in Organizational Theory, my thesis is a comparative study of the accountability of philanthropists. I hold a M. Sc. in Business (including BA), with a major in Organization from the Stockholm School of Economics. I also have a BA in Theatre Studies from Stockholm University, with a thesis on Aesthetics of Philanthropy. I have extensive international work experience as fundraiser and I have also taught on the topic, coaching civil society initiatives across Europe.
