Lisa Sanderink is a guest researcher at the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM). Her research focuses on global environmental and sustainability governance, with a special interest in the institutional structure of the climate-energy nexus. Specifically, she studies the complexity, coherence and effectiveness across various types of climate and (renewable) energy governance institutions.

Her findings are published in scientific journals, such as Energy Policy, Energy Research & Social Science and Global Environmental Politics, and in several edited volumes by Cambridge University Press and Routledge. She regularly presents her work at scientific conferences, such as the Annual Conventions of the International Studies Association, and at political events, most notably the United Nations Climate Change Conferences. Besides research, Lisa occasionally provides guest lectures and supervises thesis projects.

Her work at the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy focuses on designing and implementing policies that optimally shape the energy transition and contribute to a low carbon energy supply in the Netherlands. Lisa is primarily responsible for solar and wind energy projects under the subsidy program for the stimulation of a sustainable energy transition (SDE++).

Lisa holds a PhD and MSc Environment and Resource Management from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Prior to that, she obtained a premaster International and European Law and BA European Studies from University of Amsterdam.
