International cooperation with regards to health and emergency preparedness in the Arctic is the main focus of my research. In my PhD project, I look closer into how Norway and Russia cooperate about health services and emergency preparedness on Svalbard. The project is multidisciplinary and includes aspects from fields such as culture studies, public health and political science.
