Maja Schlüter

STOCKHOLM RESILIENCE CENTRE, STOCKHOLM UNIVERSITY

Maja Schlüter is a researcher at the Stockholm Resilience Centre. Her research focusses on social-ecological interactions and mechanisms that may explain SES phenomena, such as the collapse of the Baltic Sea cod, the trapped situation of water management in Uzbekistan, the diversity of self-governance forms in Mexican small-scale fisheries, or cooperation in common pool resource management. In collaboration with members of the SES-LINK team and empirical colleagues, she uses mathematical and agent-based modeling to test hypotheses about micro-level causes of observed SES phenomena and to explore consequences of selected human-nature interactions.

Andrea Downing (board alternate)

STOCKHOLM RESILIENCE CENTRE, STOCKHOLM UNIVERSITY

Andrea Downing is a researcher at the Stockholm Resilience Centre, Her main research theme is to relate global perspectives on resilience thinking and social ecological systems to sustainable development needs at sub-global scales. Building on her work on the planetary boundaries concept, her research focuses on the often undifferentiated and unspecified human dimensions of global sustainability and on understanding how heterogeneously overlapping sub-global processes combine to shape dynamics at a global scale.
