I am a researcher in geography and tourism. My research interests include Arctic- and polar tourism, tourism development, and tourism planning. The focus of my research is on language in geography and how language is used to conceptualize people's surroundings in places as well as its impact on (tourism)production and people's perception of places.

At present I am involved in the following research projects:

· Climate Change and the Double Amplification of Arctic Tourism: Challenges and Potential Solutions for Tourism and Sustainable Development in an Arctic Context (FORMAS)

· Sustaining Tourism and Communities in Post-Covid-19 Times
