Johanna Ulmanen worked at SEI in Stockholm from 2009-2011 as an interdisciplinary researcher with a focus on SEI’s work on policy and institutions.
Her project analyzed the policy process of the Swedish forestry sector and the way in which potential future impacts of climate change is dealt with. This research is part of the larger Mistra-SWECIA project on climate change, impacts and adaptation.
Johanna's research interests are in the field of (sustainable) technology change, institutional change and related governance issues.
Prior to joining SEI, she was a PhD candidate at the Department of Industrial engineering and Innovation Sciences at Eindhoven Technical University, the Netherlands. Her forthcoming thesis explores the development of biofuels for the transport sector in Sweden and the Netherlands.
She received her Master of Arts degree (MA) in European Society, Science and Technology (ESST) from the University Maastricht, the Netherlands. Previous to her interdisciplinary education in the Netherlands, she studied mainly sociology at universities in Sweden and Ireland.
