I began my higher education in 2010 at the age of 24. The first years I jumped between political science, economics, and practical philosophy, but eventually decided to pursue a doctorate in philosophy.
I completed my PhD thesis one year in advance and spent the final year of my employment specializing in political philosophy. My research articles have appeared in peer-reviewed journals such as Evidence & Policy, Monash Bioethics Review, and Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy.
I first started teaching philosophy as a teaching assistant in 2014. In 2015 I began lecturing, and in 2016–2020 I had the main course responsibility for various courses in applied ethics. I have been invited as a guest lecturer to Uppsala University, Karolinska Institutet, and Jönköping University. In 2018, I presented at the Eighth Cambridge Consortium for Bioethics Education in Paris, France.
Since the fall of 2018, I have been based in Tbilisi, Georgia. My postdoctoral research project is on individualism, and includes empirical elements. Among other things, I am conducting deep interviews with Georgian LGBT persons to study how traditional norms restrain their individuality.
In addition to research and teaching, I am editor of the website Svensk filosofi, which aims to make Swedish philosophy research and education more visible. I regularly participate in public debate and lecture on topics in political philosophy and applied ethics. I am also an editorial board member of the Swedish journal Liberal Debatt.
