Om mig

Most of my research is in some way related to the philosophy of risk and uncertainty. My research has covered issues such as: robust decision making strategies under deep uncertainty, philosophical aspects of worst-case scenarios, managing climate change risks, values in climate models, ethical issues in adaptation to sea level rise and radiation risk managment.

I am a member of the Scientific Council of The Swedish Risk Academy (Riskkollegiet) and a member of The National Committee for Radiation Protection Research at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
