Lisa is a PhD researcher at the IIIEE. She investigates the operationalization of sustainable and circular business models in multinational companies as part of the Mistra REES project. Specifically, she conducts transdisciplinary research with and on the Swedish manufacturing industry to understand how large companies manage the transition from conventional to sustainable business models and corresponding organizational changes in the context of their established business model, structures, routines and supply chains. Lisa is interested in how underlying logics and organizational sensemaking affect such business model transformation processes and which management strategies and capabilities incumbent firms apply to manage organizational changes, overcome emerging tensions and effectively implement new business models.
Lisa holds an M.Sc. Environmental Management and Policy from IIIEE, Lund University and a B.Sc. in Environmental and Sustainability Studies with a minor in Business Psychology from Leuphana University Lüneburg. Besides her academic background, she has industry experience in areas such as sustainability in supply chains, management and entrepreneurship through positions at EcoVadis, Tetra Pak, IKEA, BASF and plietsch, her own business.
