I defended my PhD thesis on predictive modeling of groundwater contamination at the Department of Sustainable Development, Environmental Science and Engineering (SEED), KTH, Royal Institute of Technology in 2015. During my PhD studies I spent a year as a Fulbright visiting student researcher at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California. I have also worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Division of Systems Analysis and Economics, KTH, and as a research scientist at Folksam Insurance Group in Stockholm.

My previous studies regard discrete car type choice models and the impact of climate policies in Sweden, as well as transport externalities such as traffic risks, health effects of air pollution, and models to predict the transport and diffusion of contaminants.

At the Institute for Futures Studies I study Artificial Intelligence (AI); the ambition is to develop methods to predict the diffusion of AI-applications with the overall aim of better understanding their social impacts.
