Title: Research Fellow
Expertise: water management and ecosystems
Mats Lannerstad is a Research Fellow at SEI Stockholm. He is the project leader and co-author of a joint book project between the SEI and the Stockholm Resilience Centre.
The book centres on water for food and ecosystems, and will build on recent advancements in socio-ecological resilience and place the entire water-food-ecosystem nexus in the global environmental change perspective.
His resent work centres on global water requirements for food production to meet the needs and demands of a continuously growing, and still partly starving, world population, and water resource management on river basin scale, in a river basin closure perspective.
Mats Lannerstad holds a Ph.D. in Water and Environmental Studies, Linköping University, a M.Sc. in Environmental Engineering and Sustainable Infrastructure, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, and a M.Sc. in Biology/Limnology, Lund University.
His education and field of expertise focuses on water from different research discipline angles, and stretches from local freshwater ecology concerns to water related and water dependent global agricultural changes and challenges.
