My research interests fall broadly within the field of contemporary political philosophy, and especially questions relating to multiculturalism, migration, minority and group rights (incl. indigenous rights), and sexuality and gender. I'm the author of The Limits of Liberal Multiculturalism: Towards an Individuated Approach to Cultural Diversity, Palgrave Macmillan (2015). Other recent publications include "Group Rights, Collective Goods, and the Problem of Cross-border Minority Protection", International Journal on Minority and Group Rights 26:2 (2019), "Excused by Culture?: Sex, Desire, and Conflicts in the Courtrooms", Transaction Publishers (2016), and Refugee Crisis: The Borders of Human Mobility, special issue of the Journal of Global Ethics 12:3 (guest edited together with Melina Duarte, Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen and Serena Parekh, 2016; hardback volume, Routledge 2018).

In Jan 2020, I started as the leader of the Pluralism, Democracy, and Justice (PDJ) research group in Political Philosophy, UiT. I am also an active member of the Feminist Philosophy (Femphil) research group, UiT.

At present, I am working on a research project Globalizing Minority Rights: Cosmopolitanism, Global Institutions, and Cultural Justice, funded by the Norwegian Research Council (2016-2021).

I am also member of a research project on Indigenous Citizenship and Education (ICE), Norwegian Research Council (2017-2021).
