I am a Lecturer (Assistant professor) in Environmental Engineering at University College London (UCL). 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 Postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Industrial Ecology at Yale University. I was a Research Associate at 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. Key methods include material flow analysis and life cycle assessment. Example projects are: regulatory approaches to the reuse of waste, MSW recycling potential in the United States, and methods for aviation emissions accounting. My work has appeared in peer-reviewed journals including Nature Communications and Nature Sustainability.
