In his thesis monograph, network-analytical methods were applied to international trade flows of agricultural and fuel commodities, examining would-be relations between structural positionality in trade networks and occurrences of ecological unequal exchange. Outside academia, he has worked for the Swedish EPA, WWF Sweden, TV4, KTH, Swedish Space Corporation etc. His research interest is in social network analysis - methods, applications and research design – focusing on political networks and international relations.
