Karin holds a master's degree in environmental science, with focus on nature conservation and conservation biology. At RISE, she works widely with biodiversity - in research projects as well as a consultant to companies and the public sector. For instance, she is involved in the project Eco-sun that examines the possibilites to integrate biodiversity and ecosystem services in ground-based solar parks, in a project that develops an LCA-based biodiversity database for food products and also works with biodiversity measures and -indicators at farm level. She is particularly interested in issues linked to land use change - how biodiversity can be conserved/restored within forestry, urbanization as well as agriculture and rural development, now and in a changing climate.
She has previously worked at Lund University with research projects linked to urban biodiversity (pollinating insects) and ecological compensation in Swedish municipal planning. She has also worked with various city development projects focused on social sustainability (e.g. urban cultivation, creation of meeting places, public art) in a municipal housing company in Malmö.
