Short presentation

I am currently working as a researcher in the project "Waste Work in the Sustainability Economy: Transforming Values of Biological Waste" ("Soparbete i hållbarhetsekonomin: värdeomvandlingar av spillvatten och matavfall") together with Tora Holmberg (PI), Malin Ideland and Claes-Fredrik Helgesson.

My main areas of interest and expertise are food and food waste, science and technology studies (STS), ethnography and qualitative methods.

Biography

My work is situated in science and technology studies (STS) but draws on experiences I have gained and lessons I have learned while moving between difference disciplines and countries. In 2011 I graduated as DPhil at the School of Geography in Oxford. 2011-2014 I worked as a postdocotoral fellow at the Department of Sociology and Anthropology in Amsterdam, and 2016-2018 I was funded by a Marie Curie individual grant at the SAXO institute, Copenhagen University.

In my previous research I have been interested in food waste and, more specifically, the various practices that consumers develop and are involved in to (try to) stop food going to waste. Currently I am exploring the different kinds of values created by transformation of organic wastes (food waste and waste water) into biogas and fertilizers. In particular, I am interested in where, how and by whom such values and valuations get done.
