I am interested in mobilities and experiences. In my research projects, I try to find out how people move through time and space, and which kinds of experiences they have along the way. During the last years, focus has been on people involved in tourism- and leisure industries, and this includes both tourists and entrepreneurs. The study of mobility includes a special interest on method development. In a current study, we work with method improvements for GPS- and smartphone applications in order to capture visitor experiences along with their mobility in a Swedish amusement park.
