About

Ina Möller is a political scientist and postdoctoral researcher at the Environmental Policy Group of Wageningen University, the Netherlands. She specializes in environmental governance and complex systems, focusing on the social dynamics between climate science and policy making. Her PhD thesis (completed at Lund University) describes the emergence of climate geoengineering as a new type of solution towards climate change, and the mechanisms by which it transformed from a taboo into a governance object. Her current research examines how actors who emit large amounts of greenhouse gases engage with geoengineering technologies. She is member of the ESG Task Force on New Technologies and co-editor of the ESG Early Career Resources Newsletter.
