My Sellberg is a PhD student in SEEN – a project on social-ecological dynamics of ecosystem services in the Norrström region, which is a case study within PECS. My’s part of the project focuses on assessing resilience of ecosystem services in the Norrström through participatory processes with stakeholders. At the moment My is exploring the use of resilience assessment in one of the municipalities of Norrström, Eskilstuna, as well as in a rural development project in Småland, south of Norrström. Both case studies are transdisciplinary learning processes where research and practice are closely linked together. The purpose of My’s research is to further the understanding of how to apply resilience, by connecting it to municipal and regional planning, as well as to the work of local initiatives to build community resilience. This could for example lead to a development of the Resilience Assessment Workbook, which is the only social-ecological research initiative targeting practitioners. My has a BSc in Environmental Science at Lund University, and a MSc in Social-Ecological Resilience for Sustainable Development at Stockholm Resilience Centre, where she now is situated.
