I am a sociologist and researcher who is, since February 2018, working at the Center for Multidisciplinary Research on Racism (Cemfor) at Uppsala University. I completed my PhD in 2014 from Linköping University with the dissertation “That will be your home” Resettlement preparations for children and youth from the Horn of Africa. Currently, I am working on issues related to Muslim women’s experiences of racism, resistance strategies as well as their expressions of subjectivity through art and activism within a Swedish context.
My research interests concern areas such as migration, postcolonial feminism, diaspora studies, racism and discrimination. A red threat through my work has been how prejudice and preconceived notions of the Other disrupts communication and how groups that find themselves positioned as the Others, through creative ways, seek to formulate and express their subjectivity. I work mainly with ethnographic and qualitative methods. Apart from research, I have also taught courses in migration studies, global Studies, sociology, qualitative methods at Linköping University, Jönköping University and Stockholm University.
