I am a teacher and researcher in political science with a particular focus on environmental politics, conservation, and Indigenous peoples. My previous work includes studies of how power, influence, and agency is constructed and distributed in and through discourses of conservation and of Indigenous peoples. I am currently involved in an interdisciplinary collaborative project that uses forests to explore ways to make anthropogenic climate change relevant and possible to act on in local contexts, and have recently received a three-year grant to analyze the organization and implementation of collaborative arrangements for governance and management of protected areas on the Swedish side of Sápmi.

My empirical focus is on the Sámi and Nordic parts of the Arctic. I am affiliated with Várdduo - Centre for Sami Research at Umeå University and the Arctic Research Centre at Umeå University (Arcum)
