About me

I am an agronomist, doctor in rural development and docent in environmental strategies research.
My focus is interdisciplinary research from a systems perspective about farm resilience, consumer-producer links, multifunctional agriculture, urban agriculture, and local organic food networks. Among other things, I have explored the contribution to rural development by multifunctional farms, how farm resilience is influenced by production system and choice of market channels, how social relations develop in local organic food systems, and the types of learning that takes place among farmers and consumers at farmers’ markets.

Currently I explore the link between local and organic food systems, the Food, Water and Energy nexus in cities in water, and the sustainability of urban agriculture in Stockholm.

I am also the deputy head of the Department of Sustainable Development, Environmental Sciences and Engineering (SEED).

I am engaged with the Centre for Organic Food & Farming (EPOK) at SLU where I cover issues related to rural development.
