Associate Professor and promoted full professor in intellectual history. Based on the cultural history of the 18C, I have since 2010 devoted my research to contemporary issues such as radicalization and conspiracy theories. My profile in media research extends from press history to synthetic media and their creating of meaning. 

I am currently project leader for the Fact Checking Board at Fojo Mediainstitute, educating Swedish journalists about malign influence operations and disinformation.
