Daniel Johansson

Associate Professor at Physical Resource Theory

Daniel Johansson has worked in the field of climate-energy-economic analysis and integrated assessment modelling for about 20 years and has written about 50 peer-reviewed articles and other research papers. His research has covered many different topics such as climate stabilisation scenarios, emission metrics, statistical estimation of climate sensitivity, fuel markets, negative CO2 emissions, food vs fuel, climate impacts of aviation, the role of autonomous vehicle in the future transports system etc. In his research he mixes theories and methods from climate science, engineering and economics. He has been active in interacting with industry, policy makers and laymen trough research and consultancy projects, workshops, presentations, policy reports and op-eds. Further, he has led and coordinated various research activities, both within Chalmers and in multinational contexts. He has developed several courses on energy and environmental issues for students at Chalmers, the School of Economics at University of Gothenburg University and for employees at General Motors. During autumn 2015 to spring 2016 he was on temporarily leave from research working as a regulatory expert at Volvo Cars.
