Academic interests

Most of my research deals with the question of how modern day authoritarian governments control information and how citizens respond to such policies. I am especially interested in cyber operations, online censoring, propaganda, indoctrination, and repressive Internet laws. My general research interests include comparative politics, political behavior, and quantitative methods.


  • Master's thesis in Political Science (STV4992)
  • Design seminar (PECOS4081)


I am a member of the The Emergence, Life, and Demise of Autocratic Regimes (ELDAR) project led by Carl Henrik Knutsen.


Before coming to the Department of Political Science at the University of Oslo in October 2020, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the “Communication, Networks and Contention” group at the Department of Politics and Public Administration and a member of the Excellence Cluster “Politics of Inequality” at the University of Konstanz. Before, I was a Ph.D. student at the Graduate School of Decision Science at the same university.
