I am a researcher at Várdduo. My current research project is called Damage Done and it studies Indigenous peoples' experiences of and recommendations for energy production, funded by the Swedish Energy Agency 2019-2022.
In 2014, I concluded my dissertation in history on Swedish Hydropower expansion in Sápmi and have since then worked as a lecturer at Sámi Dutkan - Sámi studies at the Language department for one year and worked as a research co-ordinator and Postdoctoral researcher at Várdduo. In addition to my current research, I am the convenor of the Forest Sámi research platform, a group of researchers and actors with an aim to rise the awareness of Forest Sámi reserach questions. In 2020, on the 100 years anniversary, the platform will re-publish the important Forest Sámi pampleth "Dat läh mijen situd" (Eng: This is our will) written by forest Sámi teacher and politician Karin Stenberg and author Valdemar Lindholm, the book will be accompanied by an anthology with articles on Karin Stenberg, Valdemar Lindholm and Forest Sámi issues.
My research intersts are Indigenous peoples' historical and contemporary land use with a certain focus on the Arctic, social consequences of and conflicts over natural resource extraction, mainly hydropower production, in Indigenous peoples' areas.
