I am a doctoral student in library and information science, writing a doctoral thesis on information practices in citizen science projects. I am especially interested in the interplay of information and technology between researchers and the public in distributed research projects. Other research interests include science and technology studies (STS), scholarly communication and digital methods. I mainly teach courses related to knowledge organization. I have been working at the University of Borås since 2018. Previous studies include library and information science at Uppsala University and comparative literature and business administration at the Linnaeus University.
