I started as a PhD student in autumn 2020 and my thesis focuses on work in e-commerce. More specifically, I am interested in the relationship between work and gender in online retail warehouses, and how this is materialized in the work organization and work environment. The thesis is based on ethnographic and feminist method and theory.

I also participate in the project "Handel 4.0.? Work environment and inequality in e-commerce", a three-year project run by Kristina Johansson at LTU together with Svend Erik Mathiassen and Jennie Jackson, University of Gävle.

I have a background in gender studies (MA in Women's and Gender Studies, University of Hull & Universidad de Oviedo, 2018).
