I hold an associated professorship (docentur) in history from Stockholm University. I am a lecturer of history Dalarna University and the editor in chief for the bimonthly review magazine and cultural journal Respons. 

My work covers a broad spectrum of topics including comparative pension politics, the history of social policy, contemporary Scandinavian social democracy, citizenship and individual rights, the history of development aid, and Swedish history and politics in general. My book Juvelen i kronan [Jewel in the Crown] about the 1994 Swedish pension reform was awarded the 2004 Rudolf Meidner Prize, given annually for distinguished research into the history of the Swedish labour movement. In 1997-2003 I assisted former Swedish Prime Minister Ingvar Carlsson in writing his political memoirs in two volumes. My current research on the Nordic countries and the World Bank is part of the research program Neoliberalism in the Nordics – Developing an absent theme, financed by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond. 

2018−2020 I was stationed in Maputo where I functioned as a Visiting Professor at the Eduardo Mondlane University.
