Barry Ness

Associate Professor, Director of Studies

Background

Barry Ness is an associate professor at LUCSUS and is the first to receive a doctoral degree in sustainability science. He is the director of studies for Ph.D. research education, and the editor-in-chief for the journal, Challenges in Sustainability (Librello Publishing). Barry is also a member of the LUCID research school. He also holds a Master’s degree from Lund University in environmental studies and sustainability science (LUMES), and a Bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Minnesota. Barry was born and raised in the United States, but has lived in southern Sweden since 1999.

Research

His research interests are diverse. Present research interests include inter- and trans-disciplinary approaches for both comprehending and addressing complex sustainability challenges, particularly how they can be used to improve the sustainability of craft beer production and consumption systems. Barry has been active with research on how simple, sustainable innovations can be more effectively diffused in rural areas in sub-Saharan Africa, on knowledge systems in coffee growing systems, and on the governance of large land acquisition projects in Africa. His PhD research focused on understanding the variety of tools that exist for sustainability assessment, conceptualizing complex problems of sustainability based on scale and cross-scale interactions through the case of the sugar production system in Sweden. Early research included socio-economic analyses of municipal solid waste treatment, wastewater purification systems, and qualitative and quantitative modelling of food commodity systems.
