My research is interdisciplinary and focused on how we can create greater understanding of the complex challenges we face through the use of social, large-scale simulations. We study how conversations about the transformation of energy systems, sustainable consumption and the countryside can be supported by formats where you get to experience new perspectives through the participation in a large-scale game. The aim is to stimulate better conversations about change and gain greater understanding of the complex issues, which have many different perspectives that need to be understood at the same time.
I teach in subjects close to our research, including our course in Megagame design for sustainable development (ETE367/TDDE50). In addition, I contribute to many other courses, preferably ones that clearly touch on sustainability issues.
