About Johannes Theodor Aalders

Theo Aalders is a Doctoral Student in Environmental Social Science at the School of Global Studies since August 2016. He holds a bachelors degree in African Development Studies in Geography from the University of Bayareuth (Germany) and a master degree in Environmental Studies and Sustainability Science From Lund University (Sweden). However, since most people drift off before he has pronounced these disciplines he usually maintains that he was trained in Human Geography (as opposed to Inhumane Geography).

Theo Aalders worked as a project assistant for the Earth System Governance Project in Lund, as well as an assistant educator in Social Theory at Lund University.
