I am Associate Professor of Sustainable Urban Development in the Division of Urban and Regional Studies at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. I conduct research on the politics and practice of sustainable urban development with a particular focus on infrastructure networks and how they bring together nature, technology, and society. I serve on the editorial boards of Sustainability, Urban Planning, Geographies, Frontiers in Sustainable Cities: Governance and Cities, and Sustainability; Science, Practice and Policy.
