My research interests are centered on industrial and post-industrial landscapes and their transformation, comprising both cultural and "natural" environments, in physical and imaginary sense. Such landscapes challenge the way we understand ecology, aesthetics, memory and heritage, and trigger concerns about power relations.

The research team consists, apart from myself, of Tatiana Kasperski, Eglė Rindzevičiūtė, Florence Fröhlig and Andrei Stsiapanau and together we examine cultural and material remnants of nuclear power production in France, Russia, the UK and Sweden as a form of critical contemporary heritage.
The research team consists of Per Högselius (PI), Kati Lindström, Roman Khandozhko, Alica Gutting, Siegfried Evens, Achim Klüppelberg and me. The project develops the argument that nuclear energy is in essence a hydraulic form of technology, which enables us to grasp a deeper historical logic behind nuclear accidents worldwide.
The research team consists of Per Högselius (PI) and Kati Lindström and me. The project works with a genuinely transnational approach to scrutinize how coastal landscapes on opposite shores of the Baltic Sea have been – and continue to be – “co-produced”. We study how ideas about “the others’” military capacity and abilities have influenced military infrastructures and local livelihoods.
Dounreay nuclear station is located directly on the dramatic shore of Scotland’s northern tip, where the North Sea meats the Atlantic Ocean and create some of the most dangerous water fairways in the world. The station was in operation between 1955 and 1994 and is now being decommissioned, including the iconic white sphere which is a landmark in the rural surroundings. The legacies of this nuclear establishment encompass a flourishing community life but also severe contamination problems. Photo: Anna Storm, 2019.
