I am a social anthropologist using ethnographic methods to explore infrastructures and environments. After completing my BSc and MSc at Stockholm University, I went on and did a PhD at the University of Manchester. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher within the project ‘Space technologies, resources and “multi-planetary” communities: Space exploration and the imaginaries of living in a climate-changing world’ at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow.
My first major fieldwork (2018-2019) centred on fog capture and atmospheric attunements in coastal Peru. I enquired into the work of local actors who engaged fog as a material possibility that could be captured and transformed into water, primarily in the context of urban fog oasis conservation, water infrastructure, and informal urbanisation. Navigate this website for published and forthcoming writings based on this research.
My interest in human engagements with the atmospheric and things skyward eventually led me to my current project, an ethnographic study of outer space infrastructures and imaginaries in Sweden. In brief, I am curious about the making and reshaping of on/off Earth ecologies through various forms of infrastructural mediation, asking what happens to social, political, and environmental relations when confronted by the extraterrestrial as an infrastructural phenomenon.
