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 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.

In collaboration with the local organization Empower the Northern Frontier, I work to document and communicate the still ongoing rock art tradition among the Samburu in northern Kenya. The project Samburu Rock Art - A Unique Cultural Heritage is financed by the Swedish Institute.

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 director of studies in Archaeology.
