With a background in political science and environmental science, I engage in a combination of research, education, communication and innovation activities. I am an Associate Professor and Assistant Head at the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE) at Lund University, Sweden. I am also an International Fellow at the Victorian Eco-Innovation Lab (VEIL) at Melbourne University, Australia.

Broadly speaking I work in the fields of sustainability and governance. Specifically, I focus on how to accelerate the implementation of renewable energy systems (focusing on bioenergy and biofuels for transport) and energy efficiency improvements (focusing on buildings), catalyse sustainable urban transformation, and promote education for sustainability.

I have participated in European, Swedish and Australian research and innovation projects, and since 2004, I have produced over 90 publications in a diversity of formats and presented at 40 international conferences. I am also a teacher and coordinator in international Masters programs and I have supervised over 40 Masters candidates in thesis research. I am a lead teacher in 2 Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) on greening the economy.
