Samhällsvetarhuset, Plan 5, Umeå universitet Umeå universitet, 901 87 Umeå

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 social security law, administrative law, constitutional law, medical/health law and privacy and access to information. My research has especially covered the interplay between administrative and constitutional law, and primarily pertained to social security law from a rule-of law perspective - comprising areas such as the legal preconditions for information and service exchange between responsible public and private actors in the vocational rehabilitations process, and the right to social insurance benefits.
