Professor

Sociology

 

Main research

  • Sustainable development; social sustainability
  • Constructions of nature in society; evolutionary sociology
     

Current research and teaching

  • Competition and collaboration between the human sciences in transdisciplinary projects on problems to environment and health.
  • Beyond the market stalls and ivory towers: A study on integrated science for sustainable provision of knowledge (RJ; Project leader: Anna Jonsson).
  • Governing Climate Change (Formas; Project leader: Johannes Stripple).


My research interest is on the roles, values and preconditions of people and organizations for making choices that reduce environmental and social harm. Theoretically, I combine social and economic thought (e.g., Veblen, Simmel, and theories of deliberative democracy) with evolutionary theory (e.g., Trivers, Runciman, Haidt). I have worked in the sectors of food, energy, waste, water, ethical mutual funds, transportation, tourism, and chemistry. Currently I try to integrate elements of the social, economic, and evolutionary sciences for understanding human interests concerning environmental and health problems. In parts of the period 2016-2018 I conduct this research at Oxford University.
