Assistant professor at the Centre for European Research and the Department of Political Science, University of Gothenburg

My research focuses on comparative political party and electoral behavior in European and other OECD countries. Areas of interest include: the connections between shifts in the positioning of political parties and vote choice, party position measurement, representation, European Parliament elections, and interpersonal trust.
I am a member of the Chapel Hill Expert Survey (CHES) research group, which administers web-based surveys to measure the positions of political party leadership in Europe. Together with CHES colleagues, I am working on a variety of papers that examine these data, and preparing the next round of the survey.

Riksbankens Jubileumsfond – The Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences – finances my research project exploring the immediate and long-term electoral effects of ideological moderation for mainstream political parties in western Europe.
