Since 2018, she works as research fellow at the FFU. From 2018 to 2020 she worked within the project SOTEC-radio (Methods and measures to deal with socio-technical challenges in storage and disposal of radioactive waste management) as well as in the project WinWind, a project under the EU H2020 research and innovation programme.
