After my PhD in ethics I taught, researched and functioned as Director of Studies at the Department of Human Rights Studies. In 2010 I moved to CMES and have functioned as Co-Director until 2014. From 2015 I am concentrating fully on teaching and research. I am responsible for the masters course Religion, Culture and Politics in the Middle East (MOSN28).

My research at CMES is first and foremost focused on the Middle East in Sweden. I have been studying the meeting between Swedish temperance movement and immigrants from the Middle East. I am also performing research on Swedish football teams with connections to the Middle East, such as Assyriska FF, Syrianska FC, Dalkurd and Skånekurd. I also do research on Christians from and in the Middle East, especially Assyrians and Syriacs from Turkey, Iraq and Syria.

Together with Ronny Berndtsson, professor of Water Resources Engineering I have performed a multi-disciplinary study on Hydrosolidarity in the Nile Basin with funding from the Pufendorf Institute.
