PhD in occupational science, with a background in gender studies and history of ideas. The PhD project examines how inequality is created in family farming, was funded by the Agricultural Research Foundation and was completed in October 2014. During the last ten years, I have mainly conducted research on gender and equality within the forestry sector and studied various change processes and governance linked to resource utilization and the countryside - e.g. adaptation to climate change, new technology, service development and work organizations.
