Personlig profil


My research lies in the areas of degrowth and critical organisation studies. It addresses crises faced by societies today and explores informed paths for socio-ecological transformation. 

I have been writing on the problems with work/employability, corporate violence and the plastic crisis, on the one hand, and focusing on degrowth as a vision for transformation, its political economy, and alternative models of work and organising, on the other.

I co-edited Towards a Political Economy of Degrowth (Rowman & Littlefield, 2019), together with Alexander Paulsson and Stefania Barca. With scholars and activists from Degrowth Vienna, we are editing a book on degrowth and strategies (forthcoming in spring 2022 with MayFly, in open access). 

I am currently working on a research project Plastics in a circular society: Alternative organising beyond resource efficiency (funded by Formas, Dec 2021-Dec 2025), together with Jacob Hasselbalch, Johannes Stripple and Carolyn Deere Birkbeck. It is devoted to alternative organising initiatives targeting unsustainable plastic practices.

I am a member of the editorial collective of ephemera: theory & politics in organization – an independent open access journal.

In 2017-2020 I was involved in coordination and communication of a Horizon 2020 project REINVENT, which was devoted to decarbonisation of plastics, paper, steel and meat&dairy sectors. 

I co-organised the 6th International Degrowth Conference for Ecological Sustainability and Social Equity in Malmö, Sweden (21-25 August 2018), which attracted 800 participants from across the globe.


PhD in Management Studies (Loughborough University, 2013)

MSc in Human Ecology (Lund University, 2018)

MA in Industrial Relations and Personnel Management (Warwick University, 2009)

BSc in Economics and Management (LSE, 2008)


I have acquired extensive teaching experience since my doctoral studies in the UK and then as a postdoc and lecturer in Sweden, having taught undergraduate, masters and research students. I have taught in the areas of organisation studies, sustainability studies and strategic communication.

At Environmental and Energy Systems Studies division (Technology & Society, LTH) I am involved in coordinating the course Climate, Science and Politics, together with Lars J Nilsson.

I regularly give guest lectures on degrowth at Lund University, in Sweden and internationally. Copenhagen University, University of Granada, University of Vienna, University of Parma, and Uppsala University are some of the places where I've engaged with students on degrowth. I am also involved in the online master's programme on degrowth that is organised by the Autonomous University of Barcelona and Research & Degrowth.
