Person

Ph.D. in philosophy with a dissertation entitled The Construction of a Sustainable Development in Times of Climate Change.

My main research concerns the normative dimension of climate change, i.e. a fair distribution of the responsibilities for managing the negative effects of climate change. Related to climate ethics, I have also worked on questions about justice between generations, so-called intergenerational justice. And furthermore, I have a general interest in political and moral philosophy, which I maintain by working on John Rawls's theories and methods. I have also done research and teaching on human rights.

Since June 2015, I work with a postdoc project (funded by the Swedish Research Council) about how climate ethics can be made relevant to climate politics. I'm employed by Lund University, but will be located at London School of Economics 2015-2017.
