Main research and teaching areas
- Natural resource extraction, agrarian change and development
- Political economy, ecology and geopolitics of the oceans
- Contending theories in political economy
My current research can be divided into two streams. The first concerns natural resource extraction and the energy transition, where I am examining emerging strategies of accumulation of various actors (mining companies, traders, investors) around so-called 'transition minerals' underpinning current technologies of decarbonisation. The second concerns the relation between emerging infectious diseases and industrial meat production with an empirical focus on poultry production systems in Denmark and Norway. What unites both streams is an interest in developing an analysis and better understanding of "classes of capital" and various strategies of accumulation amidst crises.
My PhD-work focused on struggles around use and control of natural resources in Myanmar in the post-colonial period.
My work has been published in Journal of Peasant Studies, Journal of Agrarian Change, Journal of Rural Studies, Geoforum and Marine Policy.
In addition to my position at Lund University, I am an Associate with the Transnational Institute.
