I am an Associate Professor, Senior Lecturer, Wallenberg Academy Fellow and Director of the Lund Centre for the History of Knowledge (LUCK). My research is mainly devoted to the history of knowledge, but I have a more general interest in the intellectual, political and cultural history of modern Europe.

My doctoral thesis, published in English in 2016, dealt with Swedish experiences of Nazism in the wake of Second World War. My second monograph, Humboldt and the Modern German University, was released in 2018.

Since the mid-2010s, I have in close co-operation with my colleagues developed the history of knowledge as a scholarly field. We have created a research environment in Lund and published Circulation of Knowledge, Forms of Knowledge and Histories of Knowledge in Postwar Scandinavia.

As a Wallenberg Academy Fellow, I investigate together with two postdoctoral researchers how knowledge circulated in postwar Sweden and West Germany.
