Biography

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher, working together with Rune Slothuus, at the Department of Political Science at Aarhus University. I defended my PhD in political science at the University of Gothenburg early 2022.

I do theoretically driven research at the intersection of political economy, political behavior and political psychology. In particular, I am interested in issues in political information and voter rationality.

Specifically, my research focuses on how voters form (and should form) preferences and beliefs about politicians, parties and policies, and how this, in turn, affects the behavior of political actors. I study this using formal models, experiments and quasi-experiments.
