I am a research assistant at the Institute for Futures Studies and at the Department of Business Studies at Uppsala University. At the Institute for Futures Studies, I am participating in the project “Subterranean politics: The world and work of policy professionals”. This project study policy professionals, i.e. people who are employed in different capacities to affect politics and policy, rather than elected to office. Principal investigator for the project is Stefan Svallfors and my colleagues are Anna Tyllström and Björn Werner.
