Marie Jürisoo is a Research Fellow at SEI Stockholm where she co-leads the Behaviour and Choice Initiative. Marie is also SEI’s Sida coordinator.
Marie first joined SEI in December 2008. She has significant experience working with climate, energy and development issues, in particular implementation of international policy in low-income countries.
In recent years, her work has focused on how a more thorough account of human dimensions, such as personal choice and habits, can lead to more lasting development outcomes. Marie has extensive experience from studying and reviewing interventions and business models that aim to promote the uptake of clean cookstoves and other renewable energy technologies.
When designing research, Marie is particularly interested in qualitative approaches that involve co-creation with partners. Marie often gives presentations to stakeholders and media on the above topics, and regularly facilitates workshops on a range of topics.
Marie holds an MSc in Asian Politics from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. She has worked for the Swedish Energy Agency on Swedish international climate policy and been a member of Sweden’s delegation to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
