Om mig

My Phd studies are part of an international Belmont Forum project "Co-creation of sustainable food supply chains through Cooperative Business Models and Governance (CO-SFSC)". For the project, I am part of a "Sweden hub" working with practice partners in the region of Sörmland, Sweden.

I am interested in placed-based transdisciplinary research focusing on processes connected to change in the day-to-day practices of actors within agri-food social-ecological systems. For my masters research I observed change processes in the context of organic farming and in connection to farmers' perceptions and practices in regards to soil health and the farm as a holistic system.

I am also interested in exploring the concept of social-ecological resilience, in particular, the dynamic capacities and practices that enable resilience.

Keywords:sustainability transitions and transformations, resilient local food production systems, rural development, agri-food systems, organic agriculture, environmental governance and institutions
