One of my main research interests is street art as an artistic and social phenomenon. I have been writing about this academically since 2006.

In 2014, my first book, The Street Art World, was independently published by Almendros de Granada Press. My second book, Street Art and the Environment, followed in 2018.

In September 2023, my third book, Tracks and Traces. Exploring the World of Graffiti Writing through Visual Methods, was published.

Together with professor Max Liljefors, I am conducting the research project Art Worlds Apart, funded by the Swedish Research Council (2022-2024).

From October 2018 to May 2019 I coordinated the Urban Creativity research theme at the Pufendorf Institute for Advanced Studies at Lund University.

In May 2019 I co-founded the interdisciplinary research network
Urban Creativity Lund.

Since January 2024, I am co-editor of the journal Public Art Dialogue.
