In January 2022, I start a new research SRC-project, Art Worlds Apart (2022–2024), together with Peter Bengtsen, about approaches to art and knowledge in the rapidly growing Arts & Health field, and obstacles and openings for an exchange of knowledge with art history.

I also work in the project Approaching the Numinous (LMK Foundation), with Jayne Svenungsson, about intersections between aesthetics and spirituality.

I am also interested in implementation of aesthetic perspectives in healthcare. In 2021, I developed a commissioned education for healthcare staff, Art, Culture and Health, in collaboration with Region Skåne.

My earlier research has mainly been about visual historiography – how historical consciousness is expressed in visual art and culture; the iconography of the biosciences and the human as biological organism and existential being; and performativity and creativity in encounters between art and law.
