I've been working as researcher at the Arctic Centre, University of Lapland, Finland since 2010. I’m currently finishing my doctoral research in sociology. However, my scientific background is in regional studies (human geography). In my PhD research I study strategic planning as a knowledge practice and a tool for planning climate adaptation and mitigation on regional level in the Arctic. I’m interested in how the complex and abstract phenomenon of climate change is made significant from the global to the regional level by producing regionalized knowledge on the societal impacts of climate change within collaborative strategic planning processes.
