  • "Research is irrelevant if we can't communicate it"

    In November 2021, the KTH Energy Platform organized a poster competition during the KTH Energy Dialogue. Finally, I had the opportunity to share my research at a live event.

    On 4 April 2022, IPCC published a new report on the climate. It is the sixth in a row since 1990 and the latest since 2014. Unfortunately, this is not good news.

If we do not want this to become a reality, comprehensive, revolutionary and structural changes are needed in all countries and sectors. A change is required - and quickly. This is common knowledge; why is it going so slowly?
