Personal profile


My research focuses primarily on how firms build up links to international markets through imports and exports, and how trade in turn affects individuals, companies and regions. In addition, I am also interested in the food chain and I have published articles and reports focusing on biodiversity, farm productivity, labour mobility, competitiveness and regional growth. 


My teaching portfolio focuses on international economics and I gave the course Advanced Trade Theory as well as Advanced Course in Economic Integration for several years at Lund University . Other topics in my teaching portfolio are the Common Agricultural Policy, Food Economics and International Economics (basic level). In addition to Lund University, I have taught at Trapca (Arusha, Tanzania), University of Copenhagen and the University of Nottingham.

Professional work

I have been the Head of the Department since 2020 and a member of the board of Lund University School of Economics and Management since 2018. Former positions includes Deputy Academic Director at Trapca (Trade Policy Training Centre in Africa), board member at Mistra Biotech, Senior Researcher at AgriFood Economics Centre (before I joined the Department of Economics in 2011).
