My research has mainly focused on the mining industry and its sustainability practice with a focus on stakeholder management and sustainability management systems. Right now I'm identifying important sustainability criteria for the Nordic mining industry financed by NordMin - a Nordic Network of Expertise for a sustainable mining and mineral industry funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers.

I teach environmental management that involves different types of environmental tools such as environmental management systems, life cycle assessment and environmental labels, but also sustainable development and corporate social responsibility (CSR).
