Reasearch / work
My area of interest is processes of change in everyday life related to the concept of environmental sustainability. In my doctoral work I have studied conditions for households active participation in source separation and composting. In two field studies I have followed and analysed the development of household's attitudes, behaviours and outcomes over time. Recently I have become involved in systems analysis of sustainable systems for water and sewage within the Mistra programme; Sustainable urban water management.
