I am Professor of Human Geography. My main research focus is social change towards sustainability, particularly in relation to climate. I am interested in how we can transform cities and urban life – materially, socially and culturally – in order to meet the climate and sustainability challenges that face us.

I am founding director for the Centre for Climate and Energy Transformation, an interdisciplinary research centre based at the Faculty of Social Science. Here I am working, with good colleagues, to build an environment that stimulates high-level research and critical thinking. We are focused on creating what we like to call ‘actionable knowledge’ – knowledge that is produced and communicated in ways that help shape society. I believe that rigorous research and critical thinking are essential contributions the University can make towards a better and more sustainable world.

My research activities have been supported by a number of funding sources. The past years I have been a fellow of the Trond Mohn Foundation, which provided generous funding allowing me to start a research group on cities and climate transformation. I am currently involved in other projects funded by the Research Council of Norway, Horizon 2020 and other sources. This work has resulted in publications across a broad range of journals, such as Progress in Human Geography, Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers, Energy Policy, Applied Energy, Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability and others.
