Ulrika Palme

Universitetslektor at Chalmers University of Technology, Technology Management and Economics, Environmental Systems Analysis

Ulrika Palme is a senior lecturer at Environmental Systems Analysis. She has a master’s degree in biology from the University of Gothenburg and arrived at Chalmers after working for some years in a small innovation company in the waste industry and as a teacher in upper secondary school. She graduated in 2007 with a thesis on indicators for sustainable development of urban water systems. Her main research interests are still various aspects and applications of sustainable development indicators, now primarily with focus on land use. Since 2011 she is on the board of Mistra Innovation, since 2013 a member of the scientific council on biodiversity and ecosystem services of the Swedish EPA, and since 2016 in the steering group of the Gothenburg Global Biodiversity Centre. The research field of Ulrika Palme is indicators for sustainable development, either as standalone tools, or as part of methods such as life cycle assessment and multi criteria analyses. Her research in the field started in urban water systems, continued to business corporations and their work towards sustainable development, and is now, since a few years back, mainly about sustainable land use and biodiversity indicators in this context.
