Short presentation

I am a PhD candidate in Natural Resources and Sustainable Development at the Department of Earth Science. In my current research I am focused on the strategies and imaginaries informing regional climate and energy transitions within Sweden. My educational background is in engineering physics. For the past decade I've been mainly focused on developing transdisciplinary approaches to higher education at the Centre for Environment and Development Studies (CEMUS).

Ongoing research projects

Regional carbon budgets and rapid transition to a fossil-free energy system (Swedish Energy Agency 46532-1, 2019-2023)

The project will facilitate Sweden's transition to a 100% renewable energy system by defining necessary goals and processes. A national carbon budget will be produced and calculated within the framework of the Paris Agreement's temperature and equity targets for Sweden as a nation (CO2 only). The project, together with the country's county administrative boards, will also calculate regional carbon dioxide budgets. The analysis results in an integrated perspective on how Sweden is affected by global developments in the energy sector, but also the opportunity for Sweden to lead the way in creating a deep and rapid reduction in emissions. As a final step, the project, together with county administrative boards, will review and produce proposals for goals and programs with low carbon dioxide emissions, within the framework of the Paris Agreement's target of a maximum 1.5-2 ° C temperature increase.

The project is conducted together with Professor Kevin Anderson.
