At the Institute for Futures Studies I serve as Deputy Director, supporting both the Director and the managers in Organizational support.

Besides working at the Institute for Futures Studies (IFFS) I am a professor of practical philosophy at Uppsala University. My tasks at IFFS include to help with the overall planning of the research and related activities. 

My research interests mainly lie within a field known as “meta-ethics”, which focuses on the status and function of evaluations and moral commitments. I am currently the PI for the research project ”Hidden convergence in ethics” which is funded by a grant from Riksbankens jubileumsfond.

I have previously worked at Auckland University, New Zealand, and Stockholm University, and am since 2019 a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
