I am a Postdoctoral Associate and Lecturer at the Center for Industrial Ecology at Yale University. I teach and do research in the field of energy, environment, and resources. My work is at the intersection of industrial ecology and sustainability transitions, with a focus on engineering and public policy for waste management and the circular economy.
I previously worked as a Research Associate at University College London (UCL), where I also obtained my PhD in Sustainable Resources and Engineering. My thesis focused on the climate benefits of circular use of materials. I graduated with MSc degrees in Sustainable Energy Technology and Public Administration from the University of Twente in the Netherlands.
In my research, I use concepts and frameworks from industrial ecology, sustainability transitions, and policy studies. I have particular strengths in material flow analysis (MFA) and life cycle assessment (LCA). My recent work focused on the diffusion of low-carbon technologies, co-processing of waste in cement production, and policies for extended producer responsibility.
My teaching experience covers mostly industrial ecology and waste management. At UCL, I designed and taught the course Waste Management and Resource Efficiency, for final year students from across the engineering department (17/18 & 18/19). At Yale, I co-teach the course Industrial Ecology, which is offered in the Master of Environmental Management.
