Profile as a PhD student in history at Luleå University of Technology, I research the heritagization of hydropower in a comparative research project of Akkats and Laholm hydropower stations. I have a bachelor background in history and social and cultural analysis at Linköping University and a master’s in environmental history at Uppsala University, both in Sweden. Throughout my education, perceptions of energy technologies have been the core focus. I have experiences working within the museum sector as a guide on the subject of industrial heritage and as a research assistant on the topic of sociotechnical perspectives on energy at Chalmer’s University of Technology. Hydropower produces a major part of Sweden’s electrical energy, and hydropower companies today play a major role in the characterisation of hydropower as national and local industrial heritages. Professor Dag Avango, CO-PI of the Nordic centre of excellence REXSAC – the centre of Resource Extraction and Sustainable Arctic Communities – is my main supervisor for my current research project.
