Academic Profile

I work at the intersection of planning, design, and geography in contexts as different as the Arctic (mostly northern Scandinavia), Europe (Sweden, Italy and Malta), and Asia (Malaysia, Singapore, Qatar and the UAE).

My work focuses broadly on the resource-urbanization nexus that has led me to generate novel theories such as the intra-rural divides; transdisciplinary urbanism; knowledge megaprojects; predatory urbanism; green resilience; and resourceful communities.

I have worked in a number of externally funded research projects for a combined 15 mEUR. Funders include the Qatar National Research Fund, European Commission's framework programme, Swedish Energy Agency, Formas, and Vinnova.

I am also a full professor and director of the Centre for Landscape Democracy at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences.
