I am an archaeologist who received my PhD from Lund University in 2005. I have worked as a researcher at the Swedish Rock Art Research Archives at the University of Gothenburg and I am currently employed as a Lecturer in Archaeology at Linnaeus University.


My main research interests include the Scandinavian Bronze Age, rock art, and landscape archaeology. I am the principal investigator of From Shapes to Action – The Narrative Turn in Prehistoric Image-Making in Northern Europe, which is a joint research project including colleagues in Semiotics at Lund University and staff from the Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research.

Currently, I am involved in several research projects. One relates to an ongoing rock art tradition in northern Kenya: Samburu Rock Art - A Unique Cultural Heritage is a joint project with the local NGO ‘Empower the Northern Frontier’. Another project, which I run together with colleagues from the universities in Oxford and Gothenburg, studies the deposition of metal objects in the Bronze Age and is called BALMS: Bronze Age Landscapes and Metalwork in Sweden. I am also involved in a pilot project investigating to what extent it is possible to use artificial intelligence (AI) to detect ancient remains: Digitized Ancient Remains Detection.
