Intervju/enkät | Interview/questionnaire

I am a Swedish writer, translator, and (sporadic) literary critic. Born in Moscow, raised in Stockholm. Throughout the 2010s I lived in different countries in Europe (Italy, Portugal, Spain, France, etc), nowadays mainly residing in Germany.

I have worked as a lecturer at the universities in Uppsala and Lund, teaching literary translation and Russian literature. Additionally, I was a member of the working group for literature (arbetsgruppen för skönlitteratur) at the Swedish Arts Council (Kulturrådet) between 2017 and 2020.

Currently I combine various forms of writing and occasional academic teaching with literary translation, primarily from Russian, English and French. My writings – fiction and non-fiction – have appeared in various publications in Sweden and abroad; an experimental poetry project, consisting of a sequence of booklets, was published 2020–2021.
