Yrsa Landström,
Master's Student

My academic interests primarily involve climate issues, violence and radicalisation of extremists, which reflect my choice of education: a Bachelor's degree in Peace and Conflict Studies (Lund University) and soon a Master's degree in Terrorism and Political Violence (University of St Andrews). I came in touch with CIRC during my time as Communications and Politics Intern at the Embassy of Sweden in Canada, where I, among other things, co-managed a multilateral event on the Nordic Arctic. My interest in communications and photography came into being while I spend half a year living with farmers in the Nicaraguan suburbs, providing journalistic work for a Swedish association working with local partners in Latin America. Scientific communication, to provide each and everyone with the small as well as the bigger picture of the research on climate change is vital. My time at CIRC have primarily involved providing new insights to CIRC's communication platforms and to reach out and make accessible the impressive work being carried out here in Abisko.

Sebastian Enhager,
MasteR's Student

My name is Sebastian Enhager. I have a Bachelor's degree in Peace and Conflict Studies (Lund University, Sweden) and soon a Master's degree in International Security Studies (University of St Andrews, Scotland). The primary focus of my studies has been concerned with conflict and cooperation as a result of environmental changes. My last project was conducted at the International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research (ICPVTR) in Singapore. During the summer of 2018, I had the fortune to work as a science communication intern at CIRC. With the task of constructing the communication platform and strategy for CIRC, I interacted with several different projects carried out in Abisko. Experiences and insight that I have brought with me into my Master's degree. I would recommend everyone to spend some time at the station no matter academic background. The experience at CIRC brings new perspectives and greater insights to climate research in the Arctic.
