Other Profile Pages


I am an applied tourism researcher grounded in behavioural economics. Topics for my research are e.g. mobility in rural areas; funding of recreational trails; sustainable food choices; the horse industry. I use field experiments, survey and big data, often linked to GIS and spatial planning. I am part of CeTLeR-lab and the development of the MIRANDA tool, currently used in Sweden for tourism and infrastructure planning.
