My research

I do research on societal relationships to ecological challenges using transdisciplinary methods, having focused on issues related to oceans and biodiversity. My research addresses topics such as the production of ocean health and pollution, more-than-human relationships, socio-ecological death, citizen science, biodiversity data, and innovation in research methods. My work has been published in peer-reviewed journals, edited collections, and literary magazines as well as exhibited in museums.

At LiU, my research will continue to explore the intersections among culture, science, environments and their inhabitants. Currently, I am co-editing a volume titled “Death’s social meaning and materiality beyond the human” for Bristol University Press, co-editing a special issue on sea farming and feminist blue humanities with the Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics, and working on several research papers related to biodiversity infrastructure, naturalist activities in the Anthropocene, popular representations of humane fish killing, dying waterbodies, and oceanic cultivation.

Alongside my own research, I am also teaching and am main responsible for coordinating The Posthumanities Hub, a consortium of scholars producing and sharing interdisciplinary posthumanities research. I have also worked outside academia for both government and non-profits related to land management and conservation, published and edited creative writing, and co-founded a literary journal saltfront.
