I am a science journalist with the climate and the environment as my main areas of focus. I graduated 2012 from Lund University, did my journalistic internship at Sydsvenska Dagbladet, started to freelance, became a mom, studied a bit more and eventually started to freelance as a journalist full time in 2014. In addition to having a bachelor's degree in journalism, I have a (nearly completed) master's degree in physical geography, hence the environmental approach in my work.
I have written for most major social, environmental and scientific magazines in Sweden and Norway (both online and in print), and many of the daily newspapers.
I live in Lund, but I travel all over the world in search of exciting/important/forgotten stories. In addition to the climate and the environment I am passionated about international journalism, primarily human rights, feminism and sustainable development, however, often with the climate as an underlying issue.
