My PhD project is a part of the research project CityFreight: Freight logistics in sustainable cities. I look at what policy tools urban authorities have when working towards more energy efficient and sustainable freight transportation. My main research interest lies within the governance of energy transitions, with sustainable transport and mobility as a particular area of interest. I focus on public coordination of transport policy, and the role of cities in contributing to global climate governance.

I was head of the interest organisation for PhD candidates as the Faculty of Social Science (Stip-SV), and as such I participated in a panel on equality in academia as part of the university's 75 anniversary celebrations. The panel was recorded and is available here.

I was also selected to participate in the 2022 Research Grand Prix (Forsker Grand Prix) as part of the Forskningsdagene festival. Here, participants are given 4 minutes to present their research in away the general public can understand and that grasps their attention. More information on the event is available here.
