Senior research assistant in archaeology, specialized in geoarchaeology.
I am employed as a senior research assistant in archaeology. I am involved in teaching, research and consultancy work at the Environmental Archaeology Laboratory. My research is mainly centered around geoarchaeology and various analyses of soils and sediments.
I have a B.A. in archaeology and a M.A. in environmental archaeology, both obtained at Umeå University. In 2023 I succesfully defended my doctoral thesis. My background is in contract archaeology, I have worked at museums and companies in northern Sweden, northern Norway and along the Scandinavian west coast. I have also been involved with matters of cultural heritage at administrative agencies on regional and national levels.
In addition to my research, I am also involved in teaching archaeology at the university. I teach courses on bachelor’s level as part of the campus-based archaeology programme but also as stand-alone internet courses. I have primarily been involved in modules dealing with the Mesolithic and Neolithic of northern Scandinavia, but I have also taught courses in environmental archaeology and laboratory work, environmental archaeology – sustainability and cultural heritage management. In addition to the teaching on bachelor's level, I have also been involved in the field and laboratory methodology course, which is included in the Master’s programme in environmental archaeology.
