I work as a postdoc within the field of cultural policy where I focus on the use and consequence of participation as policy concept in the cultural administration of Gothenburg city. The project started in September 2017 and will be concluded in 2020. The research project is funded by The Swedish foundation for humanities and social sciences. I have a doctorate from Linköping university. My thesis on artistic identity and artistic work was published in 2016.
