Area of research
Annickas research focuses on sustainable urban stormwater management within urban planning and construction. The aim is to examine the current stormwater management practice to find openings for a rethink of stormwater design in urban planning. An increased knowledge and understanding about the planning process could in a long-term contribute to a change in attitudes and management towards a sustainable stormwater management in our urban environment.

Earlier she worked within the research group Timber structures and completed her licentiate thesis Woman in construction – engineer’s experiences from a gender perspective.
