Rebecca Stenberg

Associate Professor

To contribute to more efficient rescue, less suffering and fewer deaths is my passion! Good organizing, leadership, collaboration in rescue missions can decide life or death. Everybody understands the importance of this area.


Rebecca has a Ph.D. in psychology and works as an assistant professor in business administration at the Department of Management and Engineering at Linkoping University. 

Rescue research in CARER

I am board member in Center for Advanced Research in Emergency Response (CARER). The interdisciplinary research center for studies in rescue and crisis management is financed by Linköping University and the Swedish Contingencies Agency.

 My research and teaching focuses on organizing, leadership and cooperation from a societal/social perspective. Special areas of interest are new actors in safety and rescue organizing, marine rescue and outdoor safety. 

Ongoing research concerns the multidisciplinary research programme "Efficient Rescue in the Incident Site of Tomorrow".
