I am a post-doctoral researcher in human geography as CKS. My research interest concerns municipal planning, local development processes, social interactions and questions of sustainability. 

Resarch projects

Challenges and opportunities for sharing resources

In this project I explore people’s ideas and experiences of sharing resources as a way to lower consumption-based emissions. But also, how this differs between different socio-spatial contexts and what kind of infrastructural and institutional support that would be necessary in order to make sharing easier throughout the everyday.

My dissertation focused on the production of public space as meeting place in Swedish municipal planning. The aim of the study was to critically analyse how, and why, municipal planning conceives, represents, produce and reproduce the idea of public space as meeting place but also how this is expressed though physical planning.
