I am a PhD researcher in the MESAM-funded project “Burying problems? The imaginaries of carbon capture and storage in Scandinavia” alongside fellow PhD colleague Jonas Allesson, supervised by Wim Carton and Henner Busch.
Imaginaries guide actions by creating socially imagined realities. They have a potentially substantive impact on what we deem feasible and possible in response to the climate crisis. By critically analysing the discourse around carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies, I explore the politics and governance methods of CCS from a climate justice perspective. Who benefits from CCS? How do they get their voices heard? Who shapes our imaginaries, and as a result, the technology’s design and implementation? These are some of the questions I will be exploring during my PhD studies. Answers to these questions will be influential when it comes to just socio-ecological transformations.
