I’m a senior lecturer/associate professor (docent) in philosophy. My research mainly concerns questions in environmental ethics and metaethics and questions relating to ethics and values in education.

I received my Ph.D. in practical philosophy from Umeå University in 2008 with the thesis The Moral Status of Nature: Reasons to Care for the Natural World. The thesis investigates the question of whether we may have reasons to care for nature for its own sake and what reasons that might be.

Research projects

1 September 2017 until 31 December 2020
1 October 2008 until 30 September 2010

My teaching includes normative ethics, metaethics, environmental ethics and political philosophy. I have considerable teaching assignments within the teacher education and am particularly interested in ethics education for non-philosophy students.
