I recently discovered that I'm definitely not superhuman, and that 8-hours of sleep, a good run, and some non-academic books go a long way. These things aside, here's what I’m up to now:


I'm working on my Ph.D. at a glacial pace (in a rapidly melting environment!). These days you'll find me writing dissertation chapters at the Helsinki Institute of Sustainability Science in Finland. You can read more about my research here.

Expected graduation date: 2019

Want to talk post-doctoral opportunities? I'm all ears.


This year, Gosia Smieszek and I co-hosted a NordForsk-funded event titled "Women of the Arctic: Bridging Policy, Research, and Lived Experience" at the 2018 UArctic Congress in Helsinki. You can read about the event, here.

Next stop: the 2018 Arctic Circle in Reykjavik, Iceland, where we will bring together a panel to discuss the potential of an Arctic Women’s Summit.

Together with What Took You So Long, we are currently building out Plan A, a digital storytelling platform on women and gender in the Arctic.
