My teaching and research focus on landscape changes due to the interaction between the man and nature locally and globally. At the moment I study peri-urban landscapes.

The focus of my research is how the landscape and landscape processes at different scales influence and interact with man, the society, and physical planning. At the moment I am working with the following projects:

- Ecosystems as common-pool resources: Implications for building sustainable water management institutions in the Baltic Sea Region (ECOPOOL), financed by Östersjöstiftelsen (The Foundation for Baltic and East European Studies)

- Tools for identification of high risk environments for tick‐borne encephalitis – virus, ticks, man and landscape. The project is a collaboration between Karolinska Institutet och Södertörn University (KISH) and part of a research program called: Kroppen i samhället (The body and the society).

- The role of horses in peri-urban landscapes, partly financed by Stockholm County Council

- Planning for sustainable development. Urban waterfront redevelopment in Sweden, financed by FORMAS
