I am currently a post doc at the University of Bergen where I am researching sexual corruption, sex-buying behavior, and international police collaboration. In my research I use a variety of advanced methods, with a focus on experimental and survey research.

My research interest is focused on gender and politics, gender and corruption as well as gendered types of public policy.

In my dissertation, "Sex, crime and politics. How organized crime influences and adapts to political institutions, with a particular focus on sex trafficking" (Department of Political Science, University of Gothenburg) I examine the interlinked relationship between prostitution policy, human trafficking and democratic development.
