Tommy Lundgren is a professor of natural resource economics since 15 January 2021 . His installation lecture has the title: "Forskning för en mer faktabaserad miljö- och klimatpolitik".
Tommy Lundgren's research can be described as applied policy analysis. He examines how environmental, energy and climate policy decisions affect companies and industries in terms of energy use and environmental performance. Another example of his research is how the forest's carbon uptake and biodiversity are affected by increased production of bioenergy from biomass. He conducts applied research which hopefully can be used to support policy formulation.
