A paper I have been working on for a while with Hakim Abdi was recently published in Ambio under open access license. It compares what we can learn from linking participatory art and local experiences of land use change with remote sensing and land change detection. The paper is linked to fieldwork I did in Tanzania in 2015 and 2016 and is called “Mapping and quantifying perceptions of environmental change in Kilombero Valley, Tanzania”.
I will be having a virtual presentation at Almedalsveckan tomorrow, 4th of July. If you are there, I think it will be a very interesting session!

How does Swedish farming and food consumption affect ecosystem services here and around the world? What role does agriculture in the EU, particularly the CAP, play in driving Agenda 2030? How can we sustain food, energy, biofuels, climate regulation, and thriving nature with limited land resources?
Me and Jonathan Seaquist just published a chapter in the book “Telecoupling: Exploring Land-Use Change in a Globalised World“. The chapter is entitled “Toolbox: Operationalising Telecoupling with Network Analysis” and demonstrates how network analysis can be used to clarify understandings about the effects of globalisation on land system change.
“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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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.
