Annela is a Post Keynesian macroeconomist and whole-system energy-environment-economy modeller who enjoys working closely with industry, policymakers and environmental campaigners as well as with scientists from other disciplines. She teaches economics and works regularly on projects commissioned by the European Commission, UN bodies, NGOs and various country governments. Annela holds a Diploma in Business Administration, a BSc and an MA in Biology and a BSc in Economics. After working several years in business she received her MPhil in Environmental Policy and her PhD in Applied Macroeconomics from the University of Cambridge where she continued working as a Senior Research Associate until joining the University of East Anglia in 2013. Her collaboration with Cambridge economists continues through her involvement in Downing and Emmanuel Colleges and in the Cambridge Trust for New Thinking in Economics that promotes more realistic and whole-system thinking in economics. She grew up messing about on her Dad’s fishing boats on an island in the Baltic Sea, loves sailing and practicing upright bass (hopes she’ll be able to join a jazz band one day when all economists are out of jobs). She is the mother of two teenagers.
