Anna Salomaa

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

About me

I currently work at the Academy of Finland project LONGRISK as part of Turo-Kimmo Lehtonen’s research group.

My background is in interdisciplinary environmental sciences and ecology. My key research interest is in how knowledge regarding nature could benefit transformative change. I have studied interactions between knowledge and policy, science-policy organisations, and sustainability transformation/transition. Often research has involved collaboration with practical partners.
