Main content

She is an important voice in the climate debate, and several countries have shown an interest in what she writes and tells.

The major part of her empirical research is oriented towards enunciation, polyphonic, lexico-semantic and narrative analysis of academic, political and climate change discourse.

She is concerned about how the language is used in the debate on climate and environmental issues; we need to understand how we express ourselves. We at UiB  are proud of her achievements!
