With a background in political science and environmental science, I engage in a combination of research, education and innovation activities. Broadly speaking I work in the fields of sustainability and governance. Specifically, I focus on how to accelerate the implementation of renewable energy technologies (focusing on bioenergy and biofuels for transport) and energy efficiency improvements (focusing on buildings), catalyse sustainable urban transformation, and promote education for sustainability. Recent topics of interest include 100% renewable energy, zero energy buildings, electric vehicles, advanced biofuels and the bio-economy, distributed systems, one planet living, urban living labs, greening the economy, and visions and pathways for sustainable urban transformation.
Strategies for sustainable cities and buildings
Strategies for low-carbon infrastructures
The aim of the Decarbonisation Laboratory is to build capacity for understanding the dynamics of decarbonisation.
Centre for Societal Resilience
The Centre for Societal Resilience is a university-wide independent transdisciplinary centre for research and innovation at Lund University.
Advancing Urban Innovation: Living Labs for Sustainable Building and Planning
The immense urban and societal challenges facing humanity, including climate change, environmental pressures, demographic shifts, and infrastructural problems, demand concerted collaborative efforts across sectors as well as interactions and combinations of disciplines.
Enabling the Transition to a Bio-economy: Innovation System Dynamics and Policy
The research project focuses on the question “what promotes and hinders transition pathways to the development and deployment of integrated biorefineries in Sweden?” Contributing to the literature on sustainability transitions, the project examines the role of incumbent and emergent industries,
Governance of Urban Sustainability Transitions
European cities face a pressing challenge to provide economic prosperity and social cohesion while achieving environmental sustainability. In response, new ‘living labs’ – sites devised to design, test and learn from social and technical innovation in real time – are being formed.
Visions, Scenarios and Pathways for Low-Carbon Resilient Futures in Australian Cities
This project explores and articulates visions, scenarios and pathways for a low-carbon and resilient built environment in Australia.
Malmö Innovation Platform
The Malmö Innovation Platform brings together creative forces in business, academia and the community to build a joint innovation capacity in the renovation of existing apartment buildings in the south-east of Malmö.
Swedish Knowledge Centre for Renewable Transportation Fuels
The Swedish Knowledge Centre for Renewable Transportation Fuels (f3 Centre) is a nationwide centre, which through cooperation and a systems approach contributes to the development of sustainable fossil free fuels for transportation with a focus on biofuels.
Lund University Biofuels
Lund University Biofuels is a multidisciplinary research platform that brings together researchers working on biofuels (in a Swedish and international context) from across faculties, departments and centres at Lund University.
The Emerging Bio-Economy: Investigating the Role of Communication and Stakeholder Involvement
This project investigates the role of communication and stakeholder involvement in the emerging bio-economy, taking bio-energy and the bio-refinery concept as the main focus.
A global overview of bio-economy strategies and visions
As a consequence of advancing research about bio-based energy forms and materials, the concept of the bio-economy has evolved. In a bio-economy, energy, materials and chemicals are produced from bio-based and renewable raw materials without endangering food availability or quality.
Urban Transition Öresund
This project is a cross-border cooperation between Swedish and Danish partners (academic institutions and local governments) in the Öresund Region.
