Every day activities


My Ph.D. project aim to increase the knowledge on how and when energy use is generated by every day activities and use this knowledge for the develpoment of policy instruments that further social and ecological sustainability.

The project is focused on energy and mobility and aims to analyse how resource use is embedded in every day activity patterns. There is a knowledge gap between the inidvidual and household level in relation to the population level. A purpose of the project is to overcome this gap.
