I am associate professor of cultural anthropology (2009) and, since 2012, senior lecturer at Uppsala University. As of 2014, I am the director of studies, advanced studies. I am also the chair of the Swedish Anthropological Association.
After studies and a PhD in cultural anthropology (2003, Uppsala University), and besides teaching at Uppsala University, I have worked at Gulu University (in periods, 2005-2007, teaching and research) and Stockholm University (2007-2009, mainly teaching and student supervision). More recently I have worked in the Hugo Valentin Centre, a multi-disciplinary centre of Uppsala University, as a researcher in political violence and genocide studies (2009-2012).
