Short presentation

I am a historian of technology (PhD 2013, Royal Institute of Technology) doing research also in the transdisciplinary fields of Science and Technology Studies (STS) and mobility studies.

Currently I am a Postdoc fellow at STS Uppsala with the project "Cycles of Cycling: Practices and Socio-Technical Transitions in Urban Mobility" funded by the Swedish Research Council.

Since 2016, I am Vice President of T2M (International Association for the History of Transport, Traffic and Mobility)

Common for much of my research is an interest in power, governance and justice, and the role of technology and in particular infrastructures in this regard—as well as the potential for resistance and rebellion from users towards “the system.” In terms of empirical focus it is clearly on urban, mobility, and environmental history, always with an eye at contemporary pressing issues. Particularly I take an interest in the entanglement of urban mobility, urban environments, and overall urban development, and how their co-production can transition from unsustainable and unfair to just and sustainable.
