About me

I joined the Department of Media Technology and Interaction Design (MID) at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS)as a PhD student in spring 2020. Being a member of the MID Sustainable Futures Lab, my research is within the area of socio-technical transition studies. I’m specifically interested in developing methods to inspire people to take collective action in the urgent and necessary transition towards a low-carbon society. My supervisors are Daniel Pargman and Elina Eriksson. During 2020-2023, I was part of Event Horizon, a research project funded by the Swedish Energy Authority.

I hold an M.Sc in Human-Computer Interaction with Ergonomics from UCLIC and a B.Sc in Psychology, both from University College London, UK. My professional experience prior to joining KTH includes various positions within user experience, digital communication and content strategy – see LinkedIn for my full professional CV.
