In an effort to better understand new ways of engaging visitors and locals with non-monumental historical landscapes through a phenomenological theoretical framework, my research focuses on historic viking landscapes in northern Europe.
More broadly, my research focuses on developing a model for cultural landscapes that aims at linking and activating past and present functions of the landscapes in order to understand how to better engage visitors and guide preservation and management practices in a more systematic way. My hope is that this model will also help natural and cultural sectors work together using a more holistic approach in the context of cultural landscape analysis and conservation.
Besides working as an external heritage consultant, I am also an active member of ICOMOS. Currently I contribute to the development of a new international scientific committee on places of religion and ritual.
