I’m a sociologist at the Department of Social Studies. I did my Phd at the University of Gothenburg. 


My teaching is in different programmes and a variety of courses. The contents of the teaching are of theoretical, methodological and analytical character on different levels. In addition, I have taught several international courses, such as Socio-Cultural Theory within the Intercultural Studies Programme and shorter courses like Ethnicity in a Global Context and Cultural Change in an Age of Globalization, at CMSU, Missouri, USA; Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto, Japan, Maastricht Center for Transatlantic Studies, The Netherlands and Universidad Nationales Autonoma de Mexico, Mexico City, Mexico.


My primary theoretical interest is economic sociology and the sociology of professions. I am also interested in welfare development and the political economy of welfare states. The main ongoing research-projects deals with digitalization of industries and working life, digital compentence among SME:s and how HR-practices and policies affects elderly's (65+) participation in the labor market.
