Research focuses on natural resource governance and management and environmental politics and policy.
I am interested in natural resource governance and management from a political science perspective. In my doctoral thesis I focused more specifically on the cross-sectoral governance of forest water within a multilevel institutional system. I am interested in analysing the connections and dynamics between stakeholders at various levels of governance.
My PhD was part of the interdisciplinary project Healthy Waters: The Role of Collaborative Governance to Minimize Negative Forestry Impact on Water Quality. The project was a collaboration between the Department of Political Science at Umeå University and the Department of Forest Ecology and Management at the Swedish University for Agricultural Sciences (SLU). The overall aim of the research project is to analyse how successful collaborative efforts are in curbing the negative impacts of the forestry sector on forest waters.
In addition to natural resource governance and management, I am interested in issues which concern public administration; international relations; the European Union; and the local, as well as the global environmental movement.
I have been course-responsible for the course Public Administration 7.5 ECTS and taught in Environment and Society, 15 ECTS, both courses at the Department of Ecology and Environmental Science (EMG), Umeå University. I have also held lectures in the courses Environmental Governance, 7.5 ECTS, Social Sciences 10 ECTS and supervised and examined essays at the bachelor's level in the Programme in Health Care Administration.
