My research focuses on issues around mineral resources, landscape and social justice in contemporary Sweden. I am particularly interested in the attempts to reopen old iron ore mines in the historical mining district of Bergslagen (in the south-central part of the country). The working title of the thesis is Undermining Ethical Life. My supervisors are Tom Mels and Brett Christophers.
