My research interests lie in political discourse and political communication. I am particularly interested in conceptual and multimodal aspects of nationalist, far-right and fascist communication.


I have been teaching on the first level courses "1EN100 English, general course" and "1EN110 English: language, culture and society", as well as on the distance course "1EN118 English, general course".


My PhD project is concerned with the 2014 Scottish independence referendum, more precisely how the idea of independence was conveyed to the Scottish electorate. I draw on theories and methodologies developed in discourse studies and political theory and study a wide array of materials, e.g. white papers, social media, campaign posters and interview data. The working title of the project is "Nothing but Heather? The 2014 Scottish independence referendum in text, image and thought".

I am also involved in a project that studies the role of gender equality in the ideology of the Sweden Democrats.


I am an Associate Editor of Public Journal of Semiotics (PJOS).
