I am a doctoral student in Library and Information Science within the national research school ReSource: Transforming Reading and Source Criticism in Digital Cultures. My doctoral project explores Swedish public libraries in relation to climate change and environmental problems. I am specifically interested in the intersection between the public library institution and the societal challenges of the climate crisis and in what ways the arena that the public library offer, through literature, talks, lectures, workshops and exhibitions, can contribute to the transition that the climate challenge calls for. I started my doctoral position in the autumn of 2023.

I have a BA in Social Anthropology from Stockholm University and a Master's degree in Library and Information Science from Uppsala University. Prior to my current doctoral studies, I worked as a librarian at the Stockholm Public Library.
