I aim to study the conjuncture of climate change, industrial development, and politics in the Circumpolar Arctic. In particular, I am interested in understanding how people's notions of the future guide their political action, and how various possible futures shape relationships with space and landscapes. Sitting at the intersection of environmental anthropology and human geography, I am broadly interested in issues of political economy, temporality, the environment, visual anthropology, and science and technology studies.
