I am a Political Scientist and received my Ph.D from Stockholm University in 2003. Before joining the faculty at Malmö University in 2012 I was the holder of a ProFutura Fellowship funded by the Bank of Sweden Tercentary Foundation. My research is focused on political philosophy and the history of ideas. Currently I am investigating the relationship between early globalization and cosmopolitan philosophy, with a specific interest on the development of cosmopolitan ideas and visions during Antiquity, the Renaissance and the Enlightenment period. I have also started a project on the city as a laboratory for political theory, where I study how political theories — e.g. about democracy, equality, participation, and trust — are turned into physical designs. At GPS, I teach courses mainly in Political Science and in the master's program Global Politics, but supervise also within International Relations.
