About me

Head of policy at the Baltic Sea Centre, Baltic Eye

My mission is to increase the link between research and policy.

Each day political decisions are made locally, regionally, and within various EU forums which affect the Baltic Sea. 

Presently there is a huge amount of scientific knowledge on marine ecosystems that does not sufficiently interact with policy making. Baltic Eye’s task is to ensure that decisions relating to the Baltic Sea environment are based on science.

My background is in agriculture but I have worked with numerous environmental aspects. 

I was educated at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and Cornell Univ in the United States. 

My main professional background has been at the interface between science and advocacy work, latest at the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (SSNC). My most recent role there was as the head of the department of marine, agriculture and law.
