I am an associate professor in journalism and media history, and head of the Section for Media History. My main research interests are Cold War culture, propaganda and psychological defence, media and armed conflict, and transnational broadcasting.

I am coordinating two research networks, Entangled Media Histories (EMHIS) and Transnational Histories of Civil Defence. My research groups have explored the television exchange between Scandinavia and the GDR, and media preparedness and psychological defence. I have been a guest researcher at the Hans-Bredow-Institut für Medienforschung in Hamburg, The Centre for Media History at Macquarie University in Sydney, and The Centre for Media History at Bournemouth University, UK.

I am co-coordinating two interdisciplinary seminars, the Film and Media History Seminar and the KOM Higher Seminar, and I am co-heading the DigitalHistory@Lund research platform. In 2019, I was elected a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, class X.
