My PhD work focus on how a climate tax on Swedish food consumption can be designed to reduce climate impact with as few negative effects as possible for other environmental goals.

Presentation

The aim of my PhD work is to evaluate how a climate tax on Swedish food consumption can be designed to reduce climate impact with as few negative effects as possible for other environmental goals.

I use Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to calculate the climate impact of food products on the Swedish market that will be affected by a climate tax. An important part of my work involves examining methodological choices within LCA and the effect of the choices on the climate impact of food products.

Teaching

Teaching in LCA courses offered by the Department of Energy and Technology. 

Background
