My research focuses on new forms of governing in a post-political era, with a special interest in theorizing politics and the political. I am also working within the field of critical policy analysis, especially in the areas of gender equality and regional growth, and I am also engaged in rural and urban studies.
My current research is mainly focused in relation to two research projects: Artificial Intelligence – Destroyer or enabler of democracy and self-determination (funded by WASP-HS) where I study the relations between the implementation of AI systems in the public sector and democratic governance, and Separatist spaces/Safe spaces (funded by FORMAS), where I am interested in the relations between separatism, power and political change.
I am responsible for the Master's Program in Political Science.
