Cecilia joined MISUM in March 2016 as Program Manager for the Mistra Financial Systems (MFS) Program.
Mistra Financial Systems is a MISTRA funded research program that aims to investigate what kinds of changes that are needed to make financial systems more conducive to social and environmental sustainability. The program will run for four years, with the potential for extension.
Cecilia has focused her career on finance and sustainability for the past 10-12 years by, for example, supporting investors (such as the Swedish AP funds) to invest in accordance with their sustainability policies, demonstrating how the multilateral development banks (World Bank, IFC) can more effectively incorporate environmental considerations into their project finance, and by developing practical tools for creditors and investors. Prior to MISUM, Cecilia helped start up scientific research on financial markets and the biosphere at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
At MISUM, Cecilia manages the operations of the MFS Program that includes a total of nine partner institutes (Swedish House of Finance, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Stockholm Environment Institute, the ICMA Centre at Henley Business School, University of Gothenburg, Vienna University of Economics and Business and Kingston University).
