Björn Nykvist is a Research Fellow at Stockholm Environment Institute. He holds PhD in natural resource management and has worked interdisciplinary with research on sustainability, climate change, and governance of energy, transport and natural resources since joining SEI in 2005.
Nykvist's main interests are innovations, policy analysis, and governance of socio-technical technological systems and natural resource management.
Recent and ongoing research projects focus on two sets of topics: Policy analysis and governance analysis of transitions between different socio-technical regimes, including assessments of the technical potential for battery electric vehicles, and studies of the low-carbon transition of the Swedish heat energy system; and research on social learning, adaptive governance, and multilevel governance in natural resource management. He has written and contributed to more than 25 peer-reviewed papers in a diverse set of international journals.
