About me

I am a PhD student at the Department of Architecture and Built environment. I have a master’s degree in spatial planning from Blekinge Institute of Technology and have also been working within the academic field of landscape architecture, planning and management.

About my research project

My research project is combining the perspectives of economic degrowth with intersectional feminism, trying to envision ways for feminist degrowth to materialize in the city. I am particularly interested in places of social reproduction, understood as “care” and play”, and how to make space for these practices and social relations since they are often made invisible and marginalized.

The project will have a strong link to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly to Sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11), through the subject of spatial planning, architecture and suburban environments. The project also has a critical approach towards Decent work and economic growth (SDG 8), by examining the ways spatial practices could relate to degrowth. This will probably also touch on Gender equality (SDG 5), and reduced inequalities (SDG 10), is also relevant due to the project’s intersectional theoretical basis.
