Summary:

Louise Simonsson is a scientist at the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI) where I work on sustainable security issues in international operations.
I hold a PhD in Environmental Analysis from Uppsala University in Sweden and has been working to advance the understandings on interdisciplinary issues related to natural resources and poverty, environmental and climate changes, risks and hazards, and vulnerability and adaptation as well as method development. Previously I have been working at the Swedish Emergency Management Authority, Stockholm Environment Institute, and at the Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research in Sweden.
Field work and research has been carried out in several Least Developed Countries and in the Nordic Countries. I hold an MSc in Physical Geography and a Licentiate’s Degree in Earth Sciences from Uppsala University, and has also studied environmental management in Australia. The research has been performed within interdisciplinary and social science research programmes and projects and I have published in the fields of environmental and climate change vulnerability and adaptation, risk perception and participatory and interdisciplinary methods.
