Louise Karlberg , PhD, is a research fellow at the Stockholm Resilience Centre and has eight years of professional experience.
Her main areas of interest are water, carbon and nitrogen cycling in ecosystems. She has been involved in projects dealing with water resources management in the tropical zone, as well as carbon sequestration in boreal ecosystems. Modelling and field measurements are two tools that were commonly used within these projects.
In addition, Louise has developed her pedagogic skills from teaching assignments at universities and a Swedish public school.
