Kajsa Lundberg

Graduate Researcher


Kajsa is a doctoral researcher in criminology at the University of Melbourne. Her current research centres on social and environmental harms, bushfires, high-rise fires, and urban public spaces. In particular, she examines the harms associated with everyday life in the city on the more-than-human world. Kajsa’s work aligns with ecocentrism, an eco-philosophical perspective highlighting a non-instrumental, mutually beneficial relationship between humans and non-human species and ecosystems. More than half the human population lives in cities; hence, what happens within the city radically affects the more-than-human world. She argues that these effects should be our most pressing concern in designing cities to live in.
