Gunilla's research interests span from the biogeochemistry of chlorine in soil to the use of science in environmental policy. Her most recent project is Integrated Water and Energy Management (IWEP) at UBC which is a collaborative project involving students, faculty members and staff from UBC Planning and Operations. IWEP aims to facilitate the development and implementation of a fully sustainable integrated energy, water and waste system, including demand side management.
