Research

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 work in the fields of sustainability, governance, cities and greening the economy. I have participated in European, Swedish and Australian research and innovation projects, and since 2004, I have produced over 100 publications (with more than 80,000 downloads and 2000 cititations) in a diversity of formats and presented at 50 international conferences.

I am the program coordinator for Sharing Cities Sweden (VINNOVA), a member of the management team for Naturvation (H2020) and Urban Nature (FORMAS), and a participant in Viable Cities (Swedish Energy Agency), When Municipalities set the Research Agenda (FORMAS) and Narrating Climate Futures (Pufendiorf Institute).

I am also a teacher and coordinator in international Masters programs and I have supervised over 50 Masters candidates in thesis research. I am a lead teacher in 2 Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) on greening the economy focusing on lessons from Scandinavia and sustainable cities.
