Lisa started as a municipal PhD student in Urban Water Engineering group at the division of Architecture and Water at LTU in August 2019. Her research is part of the work within DRIZZLE - centre for stormwater management, a VINNOVA funded competence centres where LTU together with several stakeholders focuses on developing ground-breaking and sustainable stormwater solutions for the future. Lisa is a municipal PhD student at City of Stockholm, Environment and Health Administration, the Department for Environmental Analysis.

Lisa's research work concerns microplastics in urban stormwater sediments and the separation of microplastics from stormwater to sediment. The work until Licentiate will focus on microplastics the separation of microplastics from stormwater in stormwater treatment ponds and gully pots and degradation of four common plastic debris from macroplastics into microplastics.
