My dominant research interest is investigations of knowledge-network-capital dynamism in different time-spatial settings by combining theories and concepts from economic geography, cultural geography and political-ecologyl. This has made me experienced in studies of development/economic restructuring at place/community level and innovation/competitiveness at clusters/firm level.

Conceptually, my work is concerned with combining insights from agency-structure oriented accounts of social theory with time-spatial accounts derived from institutional economics and political ecology. In dealing with this I have been studying processes of globalisation, how discourses, narratives and rules of conduct are informing practice of resource extraction of multi-scaled socio-economic actors and other driving forces explaining industrial restructuring and changes of development.

Methodologically, the concept of social field analisis (≈ an ANT approach) has been and still is guiding much of my analysis.

Empirically, I have been operating in places within Chile, Peru, Norway, Spain and Estonia.

Among other key concepts for my investigations is foreign direct investment and natural resource management. Recently, I have also become increasingly concerned with various dimensions of spaces of engagement. One strand of this is to explore the emergence of resistance to non-sustainable forms of production and the up-scaling of political claims and narratives that support politics of redistribution and sustainable development in Chile and Peru.
