I am a lecturer and doctoral student in the research area of Library and information science and my dissertation deals with e-books in Sweden, with a focus on public libraries and booksellers. The dissertation will be finished during the autumn/winter 2018.

I started my employment at the University of Borås in 2010 as a teacher. My areas are strategic communication, information products and digital libraries. 

I have a journalist degree from Göteborg University, a MA in English from Växjö  and a MSc in Library and information science from the Swedish school of library and information science.

Between 2013-2017 I have been working in a research project on e-books, which was funded by the Swedish Research Council. Books on Screens. Players in the Swedish e-book market, is published by Nordicom, Gothenburg University, in October 2017.
