Dr. Lisa Deutsch is a Senior Lecturer and the Director of Studies at the Stockholm Resilience Centre. Lisa is responsible for the innovative activities and study programs that focus on developing the next generation of resilience and sustainability scientists. She also teaches at both undergraduate and post-graduate levels. Lisa’s research examines the couplings between the ecological effects of globalization of food production systems and national policy and economic accounts. She particularly focuses on the impacts of global trade on food systems. She also works on the challenge of tracing and mapping food flows to cities to explore how cities feed themselves. Her work contributes to the development of a set of complementary tools that can be used to understand global food flows and the dependence of cities and nations on services from ecosystems globally.
