I am an interdisciplinary researcher investigating the social-ecological dynamics of sustainability issues related to fisheries and fisheries management in Sweden.

I am interested in a variety of topics such as the future of small-scale fisheries, cultural values of fish and its potential ecological consequences, integration of fishers’ ecological knowledge in fisheries science and management, gender (in)equality in recreational fisheries, and fisheries co-management. In my work, I often use a mix of methods and take inspiration from multiple disciplines, but my main expertise lies in qualitative methods and I have with time become more and more occupied with the social sciences.

I have a PhD in Sustainability Science, a MSc in Social-ecological Resilience for Sustainable development from Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University, and a BSc in Biology from Gothenburg University.
