I work as associate senior lecturer and specialize in the intellectual and political history of the current ecological crisis, especially its temporal aspects. I currently work on two projects. The first examines the political history of the concept of biodiversity. The second examines the history of ecological economics as political thought, 1980–2000.

I earned my PhD in Intellectual History from the Department of Literature, History of Ideas, and Religion, University of Gothenburg in April 2013 with a thesis entitled The Conditions of Equality: Demos, Empire and Pedagogy in Brittany, Tunisia, Torne Valley and Lapland, 1880–1925

I have been a visiting fellow at Sciences Po, Paris (spring 2018), and at EHESS, Paris (spring 2015). I was a visiting scholar at the Department of French and Romance Philology, Columbia University, NYC in 2009/2010.
