Lisette is a PhD candidate at the Environmental Governance group and the Urban Futures Studio at the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development, under supervision of dr. Peter Pelzer, prof. dr. Maarten Hajer and prof. dr. Detlef van Vuuren. She is actively involved in the European research project CLIMAGINARIES, which is led by Lund University and aims at exploring and finding new ways in which climate futures are imagined, narrated and employed. Within this project, she specifically focuses on finding interlinkages between Integrated Assessment Modelling (IAM) with art and design to explore alternative techniques to imagine post-fossil futures ('Techniques of Futuring'). With a background in cognitive psychology as well as environmental governance, she is primarily interested in how climate science information is presented, how climate futures are imagined and the way in which this informs climate policy. Previous research areas include serious gaming, risk perceptions and framing in scientific visualizations.
