I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Geography. My research is about mobility, both in everyday life and tourism related mobility. My main focus is on mobility for families having a disabled child, more specifically wheelchair-using children with cerebral palsy. I examine what opportunities and constraints these families experience in relation to the family's mobility, and what adaptation strategies they use to enable mobility.

I teach at the bachelor programs in tourism and spatial planning. My main teaching activities are within the courses Introduction to tourism and Destinations.
