Kort presentation

I am an Associate Professor (Docent) in Peace and Conflict Research. My work lies at the crossroads of political science, psychology and economics. I use a mix of methods, including natural experiments, field experiments and surveys in naturalistic settings, to study the mechanisms of social cooperation in the aftermath of major shocks such as civil wars, forced displacement and climate related natural hazards. I am also a member of the Editorial Board of the journal Psychology of Violence.
