I study the interaction of culture and cognition. In particular, my research and interests concern the role of culture in shaping individual cognition in a range of substantive fields such as self-esteem, self, and identity, mental health, close relationships, and motivation. In addition to this, I am very interested in interdisciplinary research, theory, and conceptualization work in general. I have recently finished my Ph.D. research at the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) with a dissertation titled “Culture-Cognition Interaction: Bridging Cultural Sociology and Cognitive Science.” Before this, I attained my master’s degree at Lund University (Sweden) and a magister’s degree at Halmstad University (Sweden).
