“In order to avoid water conflicts and to stimulate food production in sub-Saharan Africa, large-scale land acquisition must be regulated and focus on food production. These are the conclusions of a new doctoral thesis from PhD Emma Johansson.”
Do you need a compelling and clear figure for your grant proposal? Or do you need a better-looking figure for your publication?
I have a particular interest of visualizing science as graphs, maps, paintings, and even stop-motion movies (see some examples here). If I could choose, I would only make figures all day. A nice illustration is such a good and efficient way to catch someone’s attention and communicate your scientific results.
I am currently part time freelancing as a science illustrator, so if you need help with tables, charts, figures, maps, or other visualizations, don’t hesitate to contact me (email@example.com).
Intervju i tidningen Universitetsläraren om hur konst och forskning kan kombineras, och de kommunikationsmöjligheter som öppnas upp om man tar chansen.
My four years of research as a PhD candidate has come to an end, and the results have been compiled in a thesis. Here is an online version of my “Kappa“, which is a summarizing and conceptualizing chapter to complement and add a bit of context for the four papers of the thesis (three published, one in review).
Welcome to join the defense, which will be held the 14th of September at 10:00 in Världen, Geocentrum I, Lund University. Associate Professor Line Gordon from Stockholm Resilience Centre will be my opponent.
“Foreign investors’ land deals in Africa could heighten water conflict” is the title of the conversation this week in the web-based magazine Conservation. Read it here.
The Faculty of Natural Science wrote an article about my latest research on large-scale land acquisitions and water use in Africa, and how land acquisitions might contribute to increased conflicts over water resources. See the article here.
I had the privilege to publish a blog post about art and science at the ENTITLE blog.
ENTITLE is a European network of research and training on political ecology that brings together scholars and fellows from a variety of institutions and disciplinary and geographical backgrounds. They are working in solidarity with social-ecological movements, people analysing and communities facing various forms of exploitation and dispossession from open-cast mining to land-grabbing, from toxic contamination to murder.

I had the opportunity to arrange an exhibition at the National Museum and House of Culture, in Dar Es Salaam, showing the paintings that were made in Tanzanian villages where land has been acquired by foreign agribusinesses. The paintings were made by local farmers, fishermen, and pastoralists, with instructions from the Tanzanian artist Joseph Mwalyombo.
Fokus Forskning highlighted my research in their brief article on insights through art.
