Personal profile


My research interest is in the dynamics between different levels of decision-making and different organizations and actors in the transition to a more sustainable transport system. I am interested in national level policy making as well as planning and decision-making processes at local and regional level. The topic of my thesis was Swedish infrastructure policy and planning - conditions for sustainability. Since the completion of the thesis in 2014 I had a two year position as a post doc researcher at Transport & Roads, and since of January 2018 I am Associate senior lecturer at the department. I share my time between an office at Transport & Roads, and an office at K2 the Swedish Knowledge Centre for Public Transport.
