She defended her PhD thesis, “Demanding Certainty. A critical examination of Swedish spatial planning for safety”, in March 2016, in which she examines assumptions of public life within the Swedish spatial planning for safety and assumptions of knowledge that make the planning for safety appear as ‘right’ or ‘good’.

Lina is also co-supervisor within the European research project UrbanHist led by professor Abdellah Abarkan.
