I am a post-doctoral researcher in tourism at the Department of Organisation and Entrepreneurship. I obtained my PhD from Mid-Sweden University, Östersund in 2017 where I am still affiliated with the European Tourism Research Institute (ETOUR).

I have four areas of research within tourism geography:

  • Art and community development
  • Volunteer tourism and eco-living
  • Landscape theory and local livelihoods
  • Ancestral tourism
