I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Peace and Conflict Research at Uppsala University in Sweden. Since 2018 I am a Research fellow at The Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities. In 2019 I started my Wallenberg Academy Fellowship. I am also a research associate with the Peace Research Institute Oslo.

My research deals with questions in the intersection between democratic institutions and armed conflict. I am particularly interested in understanding what places certain elections at risk of violence and the impact of electoral violence on citizens, as well as democratic institutions at large.
