Julia Wahtra


I am a PhD student in the Environmental Economics group at the Department of Economics, SLU. My research interests concern the linkages between agriculture and the environment and related policies. My doctoral project focuses on the drivers behind emissions from agriculture, trade-offs between different land uses, e.g. food production and biodiversity, and how domestic environmental and agricultural policies affect land use decisions in other countries and global environmental quality. Before joining SLU, I worked as an analyst in environmental economics within the private sector.

The title of my PhD thesis is Land use, food, and the environment – supervised by Rob Hart.
