Laura Tolnov Clausen holds a Ph.D. from Roskilde University exploring issues of participation and non-participation in environmental planning processes in Denmark. Her research interests centers around nature, society and technology relations in regards to understandings of sustainability, development and democracy, especially considering the role of knowledge and potential of social learning.

She possesses many years of research experience with facilitation and theorizing over public participation in various settings – e.g. nature resource management, wild life management and renewable energy planning. In recent years she has become increasingly interested in the transition to renewables and related topics such as energy democracy, popular movements and community development. She was part of Wind2050.dk (2014-2017) looking at both the processes behind and the results from previous wind turbine projects in Denmark. Current research projects explore public participation in wind power planning in Norway, Scotland and Denmark NFR ENERGIX project WINDPLAN (2018-2022).
