Ignė Stalmokaitė is a doctoral candidate in Environmental Studies. Her research interests concern sustainability transitions, maritime environmental governance, environmental innovations and shipping.
In her PhD project Ignė is exploring sustainability transition processes in maritime transportation by focusing on interplays between maritime environmental governance and adoption practices of environmental innovations. The thesis aims at clarifying incumbent actors responses to transition processes. The dissertation is based on incumbent shipping companies providing transportation services in the Baltic Sea area – one of the mostly regulated and ecologically vulnerable seas in the world.
