My doctoral dissertation explores how space, nature, and difference is produced and negotiated in the Swedish Ore Fields, particularly in the context of mining-based displacement and resettlement. Research interests include: Extractive resource industries, colonalism, urban/spatial planning, and indigenous spacemaking with a regional focus on the Nordic Arctic. I also maintain a blog at http://www.miningandsociety.tumblr.com.
