Areas of interest

European integration, EU politics, EU institutions, Council of the EU, negotiations, non-compliance in the EU, the common EU foreign policy, leadership, collective action.

Current research

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for European Research (CERGU), with placement at the department of political science. I am also part of the Centre for Collective Action Research (CeCAR).
My current research is primarily focused on non-compliance in the EU, both what explains it and how it affects cooperation within the EU. I mainly study the Council of the EU, which I also did in my doctoral thesis from 2015. I have also done research on leadership in the EU, in particular in the area of EU foreign policy.

Doctoral thesis: https://gup.ub.gu.se/file/208106


I teach mainly at the Bachelor and Master level programs in European studies focused on European politics and European Union affairs. I also supervise and grade Bachelor and Master theses.


Ph.D. in political science 2015. Double degree awarded from the University of Gothenburg and the University of Antwerp.
