I explore the just transformation towards more sustainable systems and policy measures guiding the way. My work focuses mostly on the food system, where I have studied the transition potential of plant-based food, farmers' role in the food system transition, ethics and politics of livestock breeding, and peatland politics.

Questions of justice, especially in regard to more just and equal multispecies relations, are at the core of my research interests. Theoretically I draw from the research traditions of Science and Technology Studies and Sustainability Transitions scholarship.

I also do legal research, for example related to novel protein sources and conflict management in the land use sector.
