My main research interest centre on discourses of, and connection in, personal and societal crises, and the expressions of trauma, grief, and resilience on social media. I am interested in both the textual and visual elements of such discourses, and the affordances of different social media platforms, such as Twitter and TikTok. 

In my PhD thesis and its four papers, I was interested in digital discourses on trauma and resilience in relation to specific terrorist attacks, such as the Utøya massacre in Norway in 2011 and the Stockholm lorry attack in 2017. In my ongoing postdoc project, funded by the Swedish Crime Victim Authority, I study discourses on victimhood in relation to hybrid media events and in connective victim movements.
