Current research and teaching
My research focuses on the role of political parties in contemporary democracies. I am particularly interested in how citizens participate in politics through parties, and the internal relationship between party members and party leadership.
I am one of the principal investigators of the Chapel Hill Expert Survey on political party positioning, and am also the co-principal investigator of the Swedish Party Membership Survey.
My teaching includes courses on Comparative Politics, Comparative Political Behavior, and the European Union. I regularly supervise student research on related topics at the bachelor, master, and doctoral levels.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Georgia in August of 2012, and held a post-doctoral fellowship at the Centre for European Research at the University of Gothenburg.
