I received the degree of Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at Stockholm University in 2015. I my thesis I used ethnographic methods to study mineral resource governance and social conflicts in Peruvian highland. My research interests focus on social mobilization, inclusive and sustainable development, ethnographic methods, and the role of indigenous people in different areas of environmental governance. I currently work on issues related to climate adaptation within two research projects: Mistra Geopolitics: Sustainable development in a changing geopolitical era (funded by Mistra) and Glocalizing Climate Governance (GlocalClim) (funded by the Swedish Research Council for Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning). Within this latter project I will focus upon climate adaptation in the Global South, with a particular focus on distributive justice and legitimacy.
