I have worked as a lecturer at Kalmar Maritime Academy since 2009, mostly teaching nautical subjects, maritime English and ice navigation. Before starting at the Academy, I worked with high speed navigation in the Swedish Navy as well as deck officer on merchant vessels.


Since 2013 I am also a PhD student in Maritime Science, and more specifically within the area of icebreaker operations. A unique characteristic for such operations is the close proximity between icebreaker and assisted vessel, something that leaves very little room for error. A common thread through my research is the role of humans during icebreaker operations, and particularly in regard to communication. Verbal communication, often in a multi-lingual setting, affects the risk of misunderstandings and ultimately the safety of lives, vessels and environment.
