Her master’s thesis is titled Communication without Borders (2016) and examines, in a quantitative way, how Swedish expatriates use various forms of communication media to stay connected with friends in their current country of residency, in Sweden and other parts of the world based on both demographic factors, mobility variables and cosmopolitan values. It is based on data from the Institute for Society, Opinion and Media.
Her bachelor’s thesis is titled Hungerns Ansikte (2013) and is a study on how printed press in the UK and US portrayed the situation at the Horn of Africa in 2011 before and after the UN declared famine in the region.
