Lina Berglund-Snodgrass
I am a landscape architect with a PhD in spatial planning and appointed as Docent in landscape planning with a specific focus on urban planning. I am also manager of operations at SLU Think Tank Movium.


I am a university lecturer and researcher in landscape planning with a special focus on urban planning at the Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Administration since January 2022. Since November 2023 I am also working part time as the manager of operations at SLU Think Tank Movium. Prior to this, I was a senior lecturer in spatial planning at Blekinge University of Technology, where I was engaged in research, supervision and teaching.

I was a member in the scientific committe for the  IFLA 2023 congress that took place in Stockholm and Nairobi. I was also a member of the organizing committee for AESOP's annual congress in Gothenburg 2018 (which was held in collaboration with Chalmers, KTH, GU, and BTH), and was especially responsible for organizing the doctoral student workshop. I have a past as a practicing landscape architect in London, UK, where I, among other things. worked with the design, planning and strategic development of schools within the framework of the British investment program 'Building Schools for the Future' (BSF). 

I am also a co-editor of the Swedish society for planning periodical magazine PLAN since 2023.


My teaching experience is quite broad where I have developed, led / and or participated in introductory courses in planning theory, studio courses on local development based on postmodern planning theories, autoethnographic methods in rural planning, the relationship building development and technical infrastructure, and on programming. 


My research interests concern planning in a fairly broad sense, where I am, among other things, interested in questions about urban planning (changing) points of departure regarding, for example, its underpinning ideas and knowledge(s).


I have supervised a number of bachelor's and master's theses in spatial planning at Blekinge University of Technology, including Linnea Rosenberg's work on locating and designing so-called mobility hubs that received the Karlskrona municipality's planning scholarship in 2021.
