Personal profile

Research profile

As an anthropologist (MA) working in cross-disciplinary settings, my primary work area since 2009 has been the governance and societal adaptation to change in the Arctic and in Greenland in particular. My research has had a special focus on i) the politics of sustainability ii) small-scale businesses and peripheral communities iii) stakeholder power and participation in fishery governance and iv) bridging the gaps between scientific and local ecological knowledge v) climate change adaptation. The Arctic and the marine space are increasingly framed as 'economic frontier regions' with both portenatials and risks for sustainability. I'm currently working on the project ECOTIP and ImaginePoCO, and looking for opportunities to develop further research projects aiming for institutional capacity building and sustainable Arctic livelihoods in the context of Blue growth and increased industrial accesibility to the Arctic region.
