My research interests include International Relations and European integration (especially constructivist theories and methodologies), security communities and communities of practice, EU foreign and security policy, international cooperation on climate-related security risks, Euro-Mediterranean relations, and Spanish politics (especially Catalan independence). I currently do research on how regional separatism relate to European integration in Catalonia and Scotland (see here), and EU foreign policy on climate-related security risks (see here).

Teaching

I currently teach Approaches to Politics (Political Science II) at the Dept. of Political Science, Stockholm University. I have taught the MA course in International Politics at the Dept. of Government, Uppsala University as well as International Politics, European Politics and Institutional Theory at undergraduate level at the Dept. of Political Science, Stockholm University. I have held lectures and seminars on European security and EU foreign policy at the Swedish National Defence University, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, University of Liverpool and Södertörn University College.
