I am a teacher and researcher in political science with a particular focus on environmental politics, conservation, and Indigenous peoples. My PhD thesis explored Indigenous peoples' space for political agency in the governance and management of protected areas, with a particular focus on Sápmi, the traditional lands of the Sami people in northern Scandinavia. Subsequent work includes studies of Swedish climate change and consumption policy, and comparative studies of carnivore management in the Nordic countries.

2018-2021 I primarily work within the research project Bring down the sky to the earth: how to use forests to open up for constructive climate change pathways in local contexts, an interdisciplinary collaborative project that aims to explore ways to make anthropogenic climate change relevant for people in urban and rural contexts, enable development of optional pathways, and develop measures tailored to face climate change challenges on local levels.

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

I teach first- and second cycle courses in political science. I am also the coordinator for the subject teacher education programmes with specialization in civics.
