Celinda’s PhD project is part of a science-business collaboration between Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC), Ellen MacArthur Foundation and H&M. The collaboration aims to develop both a vision for a circular textile fibre industry operating within planetary boundaries, and an operational planetary boundaries methodology for the textile sector.

Her research focuses on developing approaches for bringing together the planetary boundaries framework and the circular economy framework, as well as exploring the relationship between everyday practices and the Earth's systems. She is developing a novel perspective for the sustainable textile fibre system that includes, biophysical, socio-economic and cultural aspects.

Celinda is investigating how applying a critical realist perspective may help to integrate knowledge of textile fibres as both material and non-material objects, and facilitate analysis of quantitative and qualitative results. Her research contributes to; science by development of ‘Earth resilience’ theories; the circular economy framework by integrating a social-ecological resilience system perspective; business actions related to textile fibres by presenting visions and pathways for transformation to a sustainable fashion system operating within planetary boundaries.

Celinda holds a MSc from SRC's "Social-Ecological Resilience for Sustainable Development" programme, and a BA in Fashion Studies from Stockholm University. Prior to returning to academia, she spent 20 years working in the fashion industry with a special focus on textile and design. She has both founded and co-founded sustainability consultant businesses and advises businesses in sustainability, strategy and the multi-scale processes of transformative change. For several years now, she has worked as course leader for SRC’s undergraduate orientation course on sustainable development and global change, "Världens eko." Celinda is also a lecturer in the field of sustainable fashion at both high schools and at Stockholm University.
