My current research is about organic food and modern food relationships. I am interested in how people create and practice food values when it comes to the production and consumption of organic food. In order to do so I explore the interplay between food producers, consumers and middlemen, and the role intimacy plays in establishing trust within the industrial food chain.

At the moment I am also involved in a book project that focuses on the role of local food and food heritage in the Nordic countries and the Baltic.
