I am a Associate Professor of Church History at the Department of Theology, Uppsala University, and Dean of Academic Affairs at Scandinavian School of Theology, Uppsala, Sweden, having a Ph.D. in Political Science (1990) and a Th.D. in Church history (2008).

I have written a major history on the Charismatic revival in Sweden: Guds eld över Sverige. Svensk väckelsehistoria efter 1945. (1ed 1990, 2ed 2005) and a number of articles about Pentecostalism in contemporary Sweden. Right now I am working on two research project at my department: Historiography and Church Politics in 20th Century Research about the Reformation in Sweden, and Pentecostal-Charismatic Immigrant Churches in Sweden. I am also a co-author of a coming book (Swedish-American Contacts in Pentecostal Context During the 20 th Century) with professor Jan-Ake Alvarsson. Scandinavian School of Theology in Uppsala is a newly founded (2014) theological seminary that aims to serve the different Pentecostal-Charismatic movements and networks in Scandinavia.
