The focus of my Ph.D. is on the opportunities and challenges related to allemansrätten and the development of nature-based tourism in Sweden. This project aims to understand how destinations can strengthen sustainability by exploring their cultural connection to nature, and how these connections may impact the sustainable development and management of nature-based tourism in an increasingly globalized world.
Prior to starting my Ph.D., I completed a B.A. in Recreation Management and Leadership at WWU in the U.S. and an M.Sc. in Sustainable Destination Development at Uppsala University. Additionally, outside of academia, I have worked in the nature-based tourism field as a guide (kayak, bike, trekking, ski) and outdoor educator. Recreation and leisure, outdoor education, leadership, and nature-based tourism have always played an important role in my life. I am thankful that they will continue to play a role in my life as a central part of my Ph.D. project.
