Since 2021 I'm working as a researcher at the Swedish Media Council researching media use among Swedish kids and adolescents. I hold a PhD in media studies from the Department of Media Studies at Stockholm University. In my thesis I explored metajournalistic discourses about Swedish public service journalism in Swedish public service policy documents. For the time being I'm interested in exploring and learning more about different methods for researching media use among kids and adolescents.
