Short presentation

In research at the intersection of landscape geography and political ecology I am currently exploring social sustainability in Norra Sorgenfri (Formas 2018-00074) as well as the history and current utilisation of the People's Parks (Vetenskapsrådet 2018-01283, samt Formas 2020-02185).

In my previous research I have combined political ecology, STS, and future studies to explore research environments and future visions within the “cellular-agricultural” field (Formas 2013-1510).
