Short presentation

I'm a senior lecturer who primarily teach at Campus Gotland. At the moment I’m involved in research on social sustainability within the Norra Sorgenfri redevelopment project, Malmö (Formas 2018-00074), and on the historical geographies of the People’s Parks (Vetenskapsrådet 2018-01283).

In my previous research I have combined political ecology, STS, and future studies to explore research environments and future visions within the “cellular-agricultural” field (Formas 2013-1510).
