Background

I have a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Social Science, focusing on business administration and sustainable business from the School of Business, Economics and Law at Gothenburg University. After completing the program, I worked in the tourism industry in the Jämtland mountains for a couple of years before I decided it was time to continue my studies. 2015 I completed a one-year Master's program in tourism studies at Mid Sweden University, and was then given the opportunity to enter the PhD-program in tourism studies at ETOUR.

Area of interest

Key words: Nature-based tourism, conflict management, outdoor recreation, sustainability, mountain tourism, landscape

I am a researcher in the project "Negotiating Pathways to Multifunctional Landscapes: A Pilot Model in the Jämtland Mountains". My research focuses on how recreational trails can be a tool to manage land-use conflicts in the Southern Jämtland Mountains, and also how recreational trails can contribute to a sustainable use of the mountain landscape.

Current research

My licentiate-project is within the project "Negotiating Pathways to Multifunctional Landscapes: A Pilot Model in the Jämtland Mountains", funded by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.
