Current research

My research contributes mainly to the energy transitions and social science body of knowledge. This interdisciplinary field of research draws upon insights and theories from science- and technology studies (STS), planning- and governance studies, social-, environmental- and political psychology, social- and political anthropology. Specifically, I have studied renewable energy technology (RET)-related social- and political controversies, environmental impact assessment (EIA) processes, policy initiatives for the promotion of RETs and actor perspectives of socio-technical change processes in the Danish district heating sector. I have also explored elite resistance to political change processes in Boliva and land conflicts in post-war Gulu, Northern Uganda.
My current research explores the social- and political psychology of change processes.
