PhD candidate with the SEATIMES Project at UiB. My interdisciplinary research investigates human-whale relationality (specifically whaling and whale watching) and cetacean cultural significance in two different locales: São Miguel, Azores and Andøya, Arctic Norway.
My MA research on Greenland sharks and basking sharks resulted in the artistic collaboration Cairban: A Contemporary Shark Hunt, which has been showcased in Amsterdam and Bergen.
