Marianne har bakgrunn i institusjonell økonomi, og har jobbet ved CICERO siden 2006. Hun har særlig erfaring med tverrfaglig forskning på omstilling til et lavutslippssamfunn, og med problemstillinger knyttet til folks respons på klimaendringer, klimapolitikk og virkemidler.

I avhandlingen sin anvendte hun institusjonell teori når hun blant annet undersøkte betydningen av individuelle trekk og kontekst påvirker hva folk ser på som riktige løsninger på klimafeltet. Arild Vatn var veileder for avhandlinga.

For tiden samarbeider hun videre med Arild Vatn, og med miljø-sosiologer (Riley Dunlap) og miljø-psykologer (Paul Stern) i et prosjekt ( ACT) som søker å forstå hvordan adferd, normer, kunnskap og virkemidler samspiller over tid. I dette prosjektet utvikles en første tverrfaglig fundert tidsseriedatabase over nordmenns adferd, oppfatninger, normer og holdninger som er relevante for utslippskutt og omstilling til et lavutslippssamfunn.

Hun har kompetanse i både kvalitativ og kvantitativ datasamling og analyse, og er spesielt interessert i forskning som kombinerer metoder.

 

Projects

  • Politically Feasible Renewable Energy Development: The Role of Public Acceptance. The over-arching task of this project is to study the political feasibility of the low carbon energy policy transition initiated by the EU. In order to adopt and implement efficient policies at the regional, national and local level, public acceptance for policy change will be crucial.
  • Power from the People? Driving forces and hindrances We address the driving forces and barriers for households in Norway to become producers of electricity which is made possible by smart grids and smart meters, allowing energy users not only to consume energy, but also to generate energy and feed this into the grid.
  • Sis-klimat- Climate transitions in the Norwegian food system How can the Norwegian food production - consumption system be changed towards sustainable production of more climate friendly food? This overarching question targets opportunities for climate change adaptation and emission reductions, but also looks for co-benefits for, and stronger links between, producers and consumers.
  • Klimavalg 2017
  • ACT - Public responses to climate policy instruments ACT will establish the first scientifically based annual survey tracking Norwegians’ attitudes and actions in response to climate policy instruments.
  • Flexeffect -Flexible electricity use in households: barriers, opportunities and effects The project will meet the urgent need for social science research on flexible electricity policy and technology in Norway.
  • SUSTAIN In January 2021, the Norwegian government presented an ambitious plan to reduce Norway's climate emissions by up to 55 percent by 2030 compared with 1990 (Ministry of Climate and Environment 2021). To achieve this, transport policy must support comprehensive emission reductions that are at the same time perceived as sufficiently fair that it can be maintained over time. This is the starting point in the collaborative project SUSTAIN.
  • POPCLIM This project seeks to understand the relationship between right-wing populism (RWP) and opposition to climate science and policy, and to identify climate policy options that are politically feasible even in electorates inclined to support RWP.
