Current research and teaching

My current research focuses on world public opinion about global governance (reform) and experimental survey methods. I have conducted nationwide survey experiments in Argentina, Brazil, China, Germany, India, Japan, Russia, Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States. I explore public attitudes toward international organizations like the United Nations and proposed reforms, as well as experimental survey design and analysis methods. 

I have been principal instructor or teaching assistant on quantitative social science methods and international law at the University of Oxford and at Yale University. In Lund, I will provide undergraduate thesis supervision in the Spring semester 2020/21.
