Background and activities


I study the role of craftspeople in the transition to a more sustainable way of building in the project Craftin Climate. The idea is to highlight the viewpoint of the people that actually do the building, hands on.


I am socialanthropologist. My PhD thesis (in Norwegian) is “Meeting with presence: Between form and emptiness in product development, aikido and anthropological understanding”. Previously I have worked with product development, distant collaboration, performance and religious experience. Recently with the transition to a climate-friendly building practice throng NORD-STAR, Nordic Centre of Excellence for Strategic Adaptation Research.
