I have a PhD in economic history from Umeå University with a background in history, geography and landscape research. I study human activities and cooperation within the landscape from a holistic perspective. I focus on regional development, landscape changes and the use of natural resources and how it can affect economic and political development.
My recent research concerns the local impact of the sawmill industry expansion in Northern Sweden during the late 19th century.
