My research focuses primarily on environmental policy analyses and environmental governance. E.g. through analyses of the effectiveness of environmental policies and policy instruments - and both through European and national projects. Often my research focus is on effects on target groups. In the EU FP7 project - Bottom-up Climate Adaptation Strategies towards a Sustainable Europe (BASE) - we were e.g. through case studies in a number of European countries analysing facilitators of, and barriers to, climate adaptation. In an ongoing project under EU Horizon 2020, DECISIVE (2016-20), we will analyse how to increase recycling and recovery of urban household waste. In another EU FP7 project - Evaluating Economic Policy Instruments for Sustainable Water Management in Europe (EPI WATER) we analysed the effectiveness and efficiency of economic policy instruments in achieving EU water policy goals. In 2016, I analysed experiences with green taxes in Sweden and Denmark for EU's DG Environment. Another ongoing research project for the EU Baltic Sea Region Programme - Coherent policies and governance of the Baltic Sea Ecosystems (Go4Baltic) – started in 2015. I have been part of >25 international/national research projects where I have been collaborating with >50 research institutions/consultancies across Europe. In a Danish context, I have e.g. been part of several research projects under the Danish Environmental Protection Agency’s Pesticide Research Programme – for two of which I have been the project manager. Two of the most recent projects have been centered on identifying barriers at target group level – e.g. by analysing farmers’ motivations and examining whether these motivations are well matched to incentives embedded in Danish pesticide policy instruments. An additional field of interest is stakeholder/public participation in environmental policy processes. A theme which was e.g. analysed in the Waterpraxis project for the European Union’s Baltic Sea Region Programme. Finally, I teach environmental policy at Aarhus University and water policy implementation at the Graduate University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing.
