Background

I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Media Studies at Stockholm University. I hold degrees in Film Studies from Newcastle University, and in Cinema Studies from Stockholm University. In 2015, I was a Visiting Predoctoral Fellow in the Department of Radio/TV/Film at Northwestern University.

Before starting my PhD, I functioned as a research assistant for the project "Your Entertainment Set Free?: Connected Viewing in Europe," which was part of the Connected Viewing Initiative, a collaborative research venture based at the Carsey-Wolf Center at the University of California, Santa Barbara in collaboration with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

I currently serve as a member of the Translation/Publication Committee within the Society for Cinema and Media Studies (SCMS), as well as the network coordinator of the Media Industries Network Europe. Previously, I have functioned as the graduate representative of the Scandinavian Scholarly Interest Group within SCMS, and as the web assistant for NECS—European Network for Cinema and Media Studies.

I have acted as an expert commentator for journalistic articles on media and popular culture in Sweden and abroad. I have also been active as a freelance writer, designing learning materials for secondary education.

Research Interests

My current research is primarily concerned with digital media technologies, particularly the hardware, software, and interfaces of different streaming video devices, including streaming media players, home media servers, and connected TVs. In my dissertation, I approach these devices through an analytical lens that is informed by the social study of technology—that is I theorize them as the co-articulation of artifacts, practices, and social arrangements.

In addition to my work on media technologies, I am also involved in research projects dealing with issues relating to digital distribution, media access, and geoblocking.
