Research Key Words: Climate Change, Adaption; Technology, Environmental Anthropology, Anthropology of Infrastructure, Water and Oceans

Research Interests: My research engages with critical intersections of climate-change adaption, infrastructure and technology, and water and seascapes in the Faroe Islands. It seeks to understand the creation, performance, and (un)success of climate-change adaption in the Faroese context, and engages with questions of power, resistance, and interrupted experience. I investigate the impact of infrastructural adaption on relations with environment and water and engage with the Faroe Islands as part a global network of islands, exploring the ways that adaption can ripple along the network.
