I was born in 1983 and raised in Gothenburg. In 2016 I defended my PhD in Classical Archaeology and Ancient History. My thesis Femina princpes. Livia's position in the Roman state is a thorough study of the foundations of Livia's position as the first empress of Rome. The thesis was awarded with Hainska priset 2017. After having worked on the position of an empress, I was keen to find a way to study the opposite; female resistance to the imperial power, which led to the research project Roman Women on Trial, granted by the Swedish Research Council. In 2022 I received the Einar Hansen Prize for outstanding humanistic research.

My current project The animated nature, funded by RJ, approaches nature in the Roman world by looking at divination. The project is pursued in dialogue with the interdisciplinary paradigm of Environmental Humanities.

I am the director of Humtank and have previously been a visiting researcher at Durham University in the UK.
