In 2018, I started working on the PhD project Governing urban transformations: Cycling in the cities of the future. My research aims to provide novel insights on governance for urban transformations by extending theorisations of sustainability transitions beyond innovation-centred transition management thinking. Throughout the project I will analyse emerging understandings, of and knowledge about, smart cycling; urban planning policies and material interventions in cycling infrastructure; and, cycling cultures and practices.
The project links to research in planning, landscape architecture, environmental politics, human geography, transition studies and science and technology studies.
I have an academic background in environmental and energy sciences with a specialization in environmental management (B.Sc.), where I started working on questions surrounding the promotion of cycling. During my Master´s studies in Environmental Science in Europe (EnvEuro) at the University of Copenhagen and SLU, I continued along a management track and increasingly focused on issues of land use conflicts and planning. I concluded my master studies with a Master´s thesis on the acceptance of coastal wind power in Denmark.
I gained working experience as a student assistant at the environmental consultancy Tauw in the Netherlands and Germany and as a University research assistant.
