My research focuses on processes of memory, belonging, and Indigenous representation and politics, especially as they occur through material, infrastructural, and environmental relations.

I currently lead the Norwegian Research Council project Arctic Silk Road: Imagining Global Infrastructures and Community Boundaries in Sápmi and the Russian North, which follows the social lives of railways, ports, and northern sea route infrastructure linked to Asia and global trade across Norway, Finland, and Russia.

From studies of craft making and infrastructural development in Sápmi, to land demarcation in East Africa, I write about the embodied ways that people experience cultural change. In doing so, I seek to illuminate how bodily practice can be harnessed to achieve social transformation--both individually and in society at large. See my website for more details.
