Who may contact you, and with what kind of questions?

I welcome the researchers and teachers from these departments to discuss both concrete projects and collaboration in general. It could be contacts with workplaces for internships and study visits, help finding a template for an agreement, or advice before applying for a collaboration check. I have the help of resources at External Relations and Communications and the combined knowledge of the local liaison network

How would you like to contribute as an Appointed Liaison Officer?

What attracted me was the debate in the social sciences on the relationship between independent research and the drive toward more collaboration. In addition to conversations and advice about current collaborations, it’s an issue that I want to address in dialogue with the departments. As a researcher and a mentor I have experiences in collaborating with business, public administration, associations and the general public concerning environment and development issues.

What are you working on right now?

I’m a head teacher in human geography and teach at all levels in addition to advising PhD students. In 2017 I participated in a course on educational leadership, arranged by the Centre for the Advancement of University Teaching at Stockholm University. My research interests are the cross-disciplinary issues about landscapes and the environment focusing on farmlands in African countries. The issues surrounding the development of irrigation farming in Tanzania are an example of what my colleagues and I work on.
