Background and activities


I work as coordinator for NTNU Sustainability - one of four interdisciplinary thematic areas within NTNU. This programme has its main focus areas within biodiversity and ecosystem services, circular economy and sustainable production and consumption, climate change and smart, sustainable cities. In my research I focus on sustainable transformation studies in the inferface between physical planning and lifestyle changes and urban agriculture.
