I am working as a senior research assistant at Humlab – the digital humanities center at Umeå University – focusing on digital text analysis, media history, and strategic communication.
In 2019, I received my PhD in media and communication at Umeå University on a thesis about the formation of governmental information in Sweden 1965–1975. I have a background in film studies (major) and political science (major) – both from Lund University.
Currently, I am involved in three major research projects geared towards digital humanities: Welfare State Analytics (Swedish Research Council, 2019–2025, westac.se/en), International Ideas at UNESCO (Swedish Research Council, 2020–2023, inidun.github.io), and Modern Times 1936 (Riksbankens jubileumsfond, 2022–2025, http://modernatider1936.se/en/). Furthermore, two times I have received internal research grants from the Faculty of Arts (30 % for the period 2021–2022 and 2023–2024).
As co-organizer of Humlab’s program activities, I have arranged numerous digital humanities-oriented seminars, workshops and conferences. I have teaching experience from all educational levels and have been involved in a broad range of courses, especially related to media and communication as well as digital text analysis. Moreover, I am an editor at Journal of Digital Social Research.
