About

I am Research Professor at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO); Professor of Political Science at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU); and Associate Editor of the Journal of Peace Research and Political Geography. My research covers political, environmental, and geographical dimensions of armed conflict, funded by the European Commission, the US Department of Defense Minerva Program, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the World Bank, and the Research Council of Norway. Recent publications include the co-authored book Inequality, Grievances, and Civil War (Cambridge University Press, 2013) and journal articles in, inter alia, Climatic ChangeEnvironmental Research LettersInternational Security, Journal of Conflict Resolution, and PNAS. In 2015, I received the International Studies Association’s (ISA) Karl Deutsch Award and was awarded a five-year ERC Consolidator Grant.
