My research focuses on political violence in the context of environmental and climate conflicts associated with natural resource extraction. In addition to the relation between environmental and land defenders as well as activists and repressive institutions, I am interested in mechanisms and processes associated with radicalization and terrorism in this context. The aim of my research is to gain a deeper understanding about causes of violent transformations and to develop strategies to prevent and mitigate political violence in the context of environmental conflict.
