About Me

Lisa Sanderink is a postdoctoral researcher at the Section of Governance and Technology for Sustainability (CSTM). She is involved in a number of interdisciplinary projects (e.g. SERENE and SUSTENANCE) to study the governance, regulatory and economic conditions for sustainable local energy systems. More broadly, her research focuses on climate and energy governance with a special interest in the complexity of governance structures – institutionally and discursively – and the implications for effectiveness. Her findings have been published in scientific journals, such as Energy Policy, Energy Research & Social Science and Global Environmental Politics, and in several edited volumes by Cambridge University Press and Routledge.

Before joining the University of Twente, Lisa Sanderink worked as a policy officer at the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy. Her work focused on designing and implementing policies that optimally shape the energy transition and contribute to a low-carbon energy supply in the Netherlands. Prior to that, she acquired her doctorate degree at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam with a thesis on the governance structure of the climate-energy nexus. Furthermore, Lisa holds a MSc Environment and Resource Management from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, a premaster International and European Law and a BA European Studies from the University of Amsterdam.
