Current research and teaching

Security and fear of crime related to issues of victimhood: How safety can be studied with the same factors that are commonly used to analyse fear of crime.

Citizen journalism and crime control. Citizen journalists filming events with their mobile phones and then spreading film clips via social media and news media. This creates fast, democratic news reporting and the exercise of sousveillance (control from below) but is at the same time an invasion of privacy and labelling.

Difficulties in reporting child abuse. How child habilitation staff reason when reporting violence and neglect against children with disabilities.

I teach primarily on the first and third terms of the Criminology programme (kriminologiprogrammet) at Lund University. I also supervise bachelor theses.


I am working as a Research and Development Coordinator at Malmö City Hall.
