- About Me
I am an international and environmental historian, and postdoctoral researcher in environmental history at The Greenhouse at the University of Stavanger, Norway.
Currently, I am PI of ‘Nuclear Nordics: Radioactive Waste Spatialities, Materialities and Societies in the Nordic Region, 1960s to 1990s’, funded by the Research Council of Norway (324293) – you can read more about the project here. As part of this research project, I am visiting postdoc at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden, from 2021 to 2023.
Feel free to get in touch in English, any Scandinavian language, and German.
