Academic interests

My main interests are democratic theory and liberal political philosophy.

Courses taught

I teach the following two courses:

Politisk analyse: https://www.hiof.no/studier/emner/oss/2018/host/sfs11218.html
Offentlig politikk og administrasjon: https://www.hiof.no/studier/emner/oss/2019/var/sfs11518.html


I did my Ma and PhD at the University of York (UK) and finished my PhD on the relationship between liberal theories of justice and democracy in July 2009. At the same time I started teaching at the NLA Høgskolen in Bergen where I taught until 2015 when I started in my current position as Associate Professor in Political Science at Østfold University College.
