I am deputy vice-chancellor with responsibility for research, postgraduate education, collaboration and internationalization within the social sciences and humanities at Umeå University. I did my PhD at the same university and I am now employed as a professor of geography at Umeå University.

Research:
My research interest is in tourism and regional development, mobility and tourism in peripheral areas. My research specializes in almost all aspects of second homes and second-home mobility, Sami tourism, nature tourism, the tourism industry, regional development and rural change in particular in northern, peripheral areas and in the polar regions. A list of publications and bibliometric information is available on Google Scholar.

I am currently PI for the following research projects:

  • Climate Change and the Double Amplification of Arctic Tourism: Challenges and Potential Solutions for Tourism and Sustainable Development in an Arctic Context (FORMAS)

Biography:
I was previously dean at the Faculty of Social Sciences, Umeå University and have a number of board assignments. I have been chair of the International Geographical Union Commission Tourism, Leisure and Global Change (2012-2020) and am a founding member of the International Polar Tourism Research Network (IPTRN). In addition, I am chairman of the boards of the Arctic Center at Umeå University (Arcum), the Industrial Doctoral School for Research and Innovation, the Umeå School of Sport Sciences, and the Umeå University Library (UB).

In 2018, I received the Roy Wolfe Award from the American Association of Geographers for outstanding contributions to tourism geography. In 2023, I was elected as a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Class of Geosciences.

In addition to my academic assignments, I have also been a board member of the Foundation for the Promotion of Knowledge in Tourism, which is responsible for appointing the winner of the Swedish Tourist Award, as well as a member of the advisory scientific committee for the Rural Network. I am also a member of the scientific council for the Hospitality Industry Research and Development Fund (BFUF).
