Personal profile


My main research and teaching interest are in climate politics and the history of environmental movements more broadly. I have worked with the political development of the global climate justice movement with a focus on economic ideas emerging from campaigns and mobilization. In my work, I combine new theoretical frameworks and historical experiences for understanding rapid transformation in light of the climate crisis. Recently, I have investigated the role of climate justice in affluent countries in light of commitments to the Paris agreement, focusing on historical responsibilities.

 I engage in transdisciplinary research, teaching and communication on climate, sustainability and ecosocial transformation across humanities, sociology, economics and political ecology.

I recently led the project “How can the Covid19-crisis strengthen the green transition in Denmark?” funded by Velux. Currently, I am co-PI of the Network for Global Justice and the Environmental Humanities: Transformative engagements between academia and civil society.
