I am interested in the use of technology in areas such as artificial intelligence, migration and climate change. I believe that technology can be used for both good or bad, both for human progress and human stupidity. I see the potential of how civic involvement and governance in the European Union can be improved, and in the long term could serve as a model for the planet as a whole. In 2019 I co-created the first think-tank for liquid democracy in Sweden and I am also active in organizations such as Democracy Without Borders.
