I am Dag Hammarskjöld Professor of Peace and Conflict Research at Uppsala University and Research Professor at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO). I also do some teaching and supervision at the Department of Political Science at the University of Oslo.

My research interests revolve around how democratic institutions can prevent armed conflict, and how the relations between institutions and incentives for the use of organized violence are contingent on socio-economic changes such as poverty reduction, economic diversification, and education. I am also interested in forecasting political events such as armed conflict.
