Background

LL.M. 2009, LL.D. 2013, Associate Professor at the department of law since 2019.

Research

My research revolves around constitutional rights and rule of law, in particular the intersection of technology, security and human rights.

Currently I am leading the cross-discplinary project "HYDE – Human agency and the rule of law in semi-automated decision-making systems", funded by the Swedish Research. In this project researchers from law and informatics will be analyzing the legal implications of semi-automated decision-making and the interaction between human and machine autonomy in contexts where human decisions are supported by AI or machine learning.

I am also part of the project "Cyborg Politics: A study of artificial agents in online democratic deliberation", analyzing political social bots on social media platforms. The project is funded under the Wallenberg WASP-HS programme.

My previous research has mainly focused on technology and policing.

In the project Police Work - Between Efficiency and the Rule of Law financed by the Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences, we investigated how different understandings of what constitutes "effective police work" influence practical police work and how these understandings consequently interact and interfere with the preservation of Rule of Law values.

Between 2015 and 2018 I also ran the research project "Cyber-security from a cross-legal perspective", financed by the Ragnar Söderberg foundation. In this project I research the legal responsibilities and conditions for cyber-security in relation to antagonistic attacks against government information systems with a focus on protection of private data and accountability.

From january 2014 to june 2015 I was a part of the research project "The Crisis, the authorities and the law" financed by the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency, where I primarily researched constitutional aspects of crisis management.

My doctoral thesis project, finished in 2013 looked at the balancing between privacy and security interests in regards to electronic intelligence gathering by the Swedish Security Service. I approached the area from a rule of law perspective with a special focus on constitutional proportionality theories and developments in technology, privacy and security concepts.

Teaching

I teach constitutional law and human rights at the first semester of the law programme. I also teach jurisprudence and philosophy of law on semester 7. I am the head of the master's programme in Constitutional Law and Human Rights. 

Other

I currently serve as director of graduate studies at the department of law, and as technical editor of the Journal of Digital Social Research (JDSR).
