David Collste

With the eagerness to make sense of the world and change it to the better, I found System Dynamics modelling a particularly rewarding tool.

My areas of expertise are in sustainability science and development economics. I have worked within the associated negotiation processes at the United Nations on Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). I am currently a Marie Curie PhD Fellow at the Stockholm Resilience Centre in Sweden and CERDI at Université Clermont Auvergne in France. My research focuses on modelling for SDG implementation within the EU project ‘Adaptation to a New Economic Reality’.

I hold a joint European Master in System Dynamics (EMSD), an MSc. in Business Administration from Radboud University (Netherlands), and an MSc. in Political Sciences from Uppsala University, Sweden
