About Dr. Anna Zakrisson
Science and outreach matter a lot to me. I firmly believe that true empowerment today is achieved by combining science literacy, critical thinking, and imaginative ways of communication. This is also the base for a thriving and fast-growing green infrastructure industry.
I only take on projects I scientifically, and ethically, believe in.
