Torsten is Assistant Professor at Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies (LUCSUS). His research interests include marine governance, species conservation, traditional ecological knowledge.
Within the project, Torsten will mostly be involved in developing policy guidance for further research and innovation orientations (lead by Prof. Emily Boyd). Within this task, the aim is to develop a framework for evaluating readiness for policy change based on the latest science provided by the MaCoBioS partners. He is also supervising doctoral researchers within the project.
Torsten is very much looking forward to learn from all the partners involved. He also hopes that the project will contribute to a more sustainable governance of marine and coastal ecosystems, recognizing the interlinkages between the land and the sea, and between people and the environment.
