My research interests lie at the intersection of political sociology, political psychology, and migration studies. In my work I seek to understand the processes behind crime, the creation and loss of generalized trust, and confidence in governments. I am particularly interested in the impact of ethnic diversity on these phenomena, but also the methodological implications that follow from extant research. I use a wide range of statistical techniques such as multilevel, structural equation modelling, panel analysis, and machine learning. I draw on survey questionnaires, register, and experimental data.
