I am, since the year 2016, Senior Lecturer in Social Sciences Education, with a special focus on Religious Education. My doctoral thesis (the University of Gothenburg, 2010) was ”Prayer in Peasant Communities: A Contras of Ideals and Practices” (published by Mellen Press, 2011). Before coming to the University of Borås, I have been working at the University of Gothenburg and Halmstad University; as visiting fellow at Cambridge University, Helsinki University and Lund Univiersity; and as school teacher at Upper Secondary schools in Lund, Halmstad and Helsingborg.

My research is organised within the field of Religious Studies and Theology, and is focused both on issuses concerning Religious Education in Higher Education and on Practical Theology.

Next to my lecturing and researching, I write Textbooks for both schools and universities.
