Born 1976 in Hassela, Hälsingland. Educated at the Mid Sweden University in Östersund and Lund University. BA in History of Religion and MA in Archaeology. I defended my Ph.D. thesis in archaeology entitled "Ritualization, Hybridization, Fragmentation. The Mutability of Roman Vessels in Germania Magna AD 1-400" in 2009. My research include Iron Age and Early Medieval Europe and Scandinavia, materiality, cultural interaction, ritual theory, the archaeology of death and burial, migration and colonialism, the Swedish colony New Sweden in 17th century North America, as well as the role of archaeology in popular culture.
