Research Interests

​I am currently working on gender inequality and armed conflict in India with Erika Forsberg (Uppsala University), on armed political actors' control of sexual violence with Angela Muvumba Sellström (Uppsala Universtiy), and on the participation of women in the Swedish military. My research focuses on women, peace, security, and UNSCR 1325.
