Lena Goldkuhl is an engineer with a PhD in Marketing. Goldkuhl’s research is focused on the development of, and transition to, planning processes for more sustainable stormwater systems. Her research especially focuses on how to involve all relevant water actors already at the beginning of the planning process, and the identification of key factors needed to achieve this. Her research is mainly action research based, and is conducted in trans-disciplinary collaborations, involving those actors that actually are (or should be) involved in the development of sustainable stormwater planning practices. Currently, Goldkuhl is primarily working as centre coordinator of the national centre of excellence “DRIZZLE - Centre for Stormwater Management”. She is also leader of the WssTP Working Group “Ecosystem Services”.
