Personal profile


My reseacrh focuses on political representation in Western democracies. I investigate how political parties, interest groups, parliaments, and individual politicians contribute to representing voter interests. I am cocerned with how political representationen is enacted by elite actors as well as how representation is perceived by voters.


I teach and supervise bachelor, master, and PhD students in Political Science. I try to make my teaching relevant, engaging and employable. My teaching is informed by the newest research on my field. For instance, I teach Political institutions (BA), The role of political parties in Democracy (BA), Politicians behaviour (MA), and Voters' perception of political actors and institutions (PhD)
