My research interests can be found within international relations and the geopolitical developments in the Arctic region. I have previously written about the governmental application of private actors as a tool for power expansion, such as through various security-political analyses of Chinese investments on Greenland and Iceland. I am especially interested in how non-military sectors are increasingly intertwined with security and how these developments can be best understood. My current research is focused on why Russian-Norwegian fisheries co-management has continued despite the security-political consequences of the Ukraine War.
