LL.D 2019. Assistant Professor since May 2020, specializing in Administrative Law.

Presently active (2021-2024) within the project HYDE – Human agency and the rule of law in semi-automated decision-making systems, financed by The Swedish Research Council. 

My areas of scholarly interest are administrative law, constitutional law, social security law, law and technology, medical/health law, privacy and access to information.

My present research covers the digitalization and automation of public sector services and decision-making. Other research areas of interest are also the interplay between administrative and constitutional law, as well as social security law from a rule-of law perspective.

I am currently co-supervising two doctoral candidate projects.
