Short presentation

My thesis is situated at the intersection between green political theory and empirical research. Current work investigate the association between contestation in political discussions and pro-environmental preferences theoretically and empirically. Research interests include deliberative- and participatory democratic theory, political and social polarization, and socio-ecological relationships. I utilize both quantitative and qualitative methods in my empirical work.
