Admitted to PhD Programme: 2016-03-01

Supervisor: Tomas Germundsson



BA Classics and History, MA World Heritage Studies


Before my doctoral studies I worked on a number of projects within archaeology and heritage management including archaeological fieldwork on the Sanctuary of Ismenion Apollo in Thebes, Greece with Bucknell University as well as on a TANDEM-funded project between the Selçuk Ephesus City Memory Center in Turkey and Diadrasis in Greece researching intangible heritage as a reconciliatory tool. I am also an active ICOMOS member through which I helped to develop the International Scientific Committee on Places of Religion and Ritiual (PRERICO). I have also worked as an external heritage consultant with the State Archaeological Office of Schleswig-Holstein in Germany on a UNESCO world heritage site nomination for the Archaeological Border Complex of Hedeby and the Danevirke.


Research Interests

Cultural heritage; cultural landscapes; tourism studies; landscape phenomenology; historical, cultural, and landscape geography; storytelling; creative writing; qualitative research



My research is based within landscape geography with a focus on phenomenological engagement and sense of belonging in heritage landscapes. My dissertation focuses on developing a conceptual model to engage visitors in more dynamic and creative ways and to incorporate affective qualities in preservation and management practices. My fieldwork is conducted at several historic viking landscapes in Sweden and Germany.



I mostly teach within landscape geography and qualitative methods.
