I am a PhD-student in Political Science at the Political Science Unit, Luleå University of Technology.
I received my MSc in Development Studies from the Department of Government at Uppsala University in 2014. During my academic studies and previous work I have conducted field research in Tanzania, Kenya and South Africa on themes such as democratization, migration, gender, violence and land-rights.
I teach on Democracy, Development and Democratization, Local Government A and Integration course - Globalization.
My research focuses on development studies with two research interests: 1) the study of hybrid governance of natural resource management in low-income countries and, 2) migration and the gendered nature of violence.
In my PhD, I focus on governance in areas of dual authorities. More spefically I study the role of Traditional authorities in the governance of the commons. This research relies on qualitative fieldwork and surveys collected in Transboundary Protected Areas in Southern Africa.
