About me

Cecilia Håkansson is an Associate Professor and Lecturer in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics at the Department of Sustainable Development, Environmental Science and Engineering (SEED), KTH. She holds a PhD in Economics from the Department of Forest Economics, SLU-Umeå (2007). Her main areas of expertise are valuation of ecosystem services and cost-benefit analysis (CBA). 


I have an MSc in economics from the Swedish University of Natural Sciences (SLU)- Uppsala (2002). I did my PhD at the Department of Forest Economics, SLU-Umeå, between 2002-2007, and between 2007-2009 I worked as a researcher at the same department. Since late 2009 I have been working as a researcher, assistant professor, and associate professor (2015-) at the Department of Sustainable development, Environmental science and Engineering (SEED). My main research areas are: non-market valuation of ecosystem services (in monetary and non-monetary terms), cost-benefit analysis (CBA), benefit transfer, and distributional issues. In general, my valuation research has focused on a holistic valuation approach connected to actual policy and ecological science. Hence, I have worked interdisciplinary and aimed at presenting results that are directly usable for environmental managers to evaluate policy options, e.g. as part of a CBA.
