I am a professor of mathematics/applied mathematics at Mälardalen University since 1999. Member of the board of the Institute for Analytical Sociology at Linköping University. Editorial assignments for the journals Judgment and Decision Making and Social Justice Research.
I have doctoral degrees in both mathematics and social psychology. My current main interest is social norms and opinions on moral issues. I study both how they change over time and how they vary between different groups and between different cultures - and how this depends on what norm or moral issue it is. In this work I collaborate with Pontus Strimling. Another interest is to study educational science issues through analysis of data from the large-scale international surveys PISA and TIMSS.
