Personal profile



My research focuses on connections between political ecology, sustainable finance and ESD. This allows examining the urban political ecologies and economic geographies of climate adaption strategies at various scales. In this context I particularly examines the knowledge base upon which geographers, urban planners and architects shape the cities of tomorrow. This is a centre piece to my research in the study of green(er) planning and regulation models. Shaping low carbon and sustainable societies invites critical scrutiny, not least in the context of socio-technical change. Consequently, I also research the geographies of sustainable financialization and algorithmic economies. Particularly, I research algorithmic opportunities and risks to sustainable finance.



I have supervised approx. 65 bachelor thesis and 15 master thesis projects. My approach to teaching is informed by critical pedagogics. This means that I conceive learning as a process through which students enrich their individual ability to develop methods for knowledge production, rather than transferring knowledge to students themselves. I have taught invited guest lectures nationally and internationally e.g. University of British Columbia (UBC), Lund University, Aalto University, and King’s College London (KCL), SDU, AAU etc.
