My interest is in the interdisciplinary study of energy, environment, and resources. My research is at the intersection of engineering and public policy and combines methods and frameworks from Industrial Ecology and Sustainability Transitions.
For my PhD, I studied the climate change benefits of efficient and circular use of materials in the global paper life cycle. I then worked on the diffusion of low-carbon innovations, co-processing of waste in cement, and policies for extended producer responsibility (EPR).
Presently, as a postdoctoral associate at Yale, I work on projects related to waste management, circular economy, and transport emissions. My methods include material flow analysis (MFA), life cycle assessment (LCA), input-output analysis (IOA), and policy analysis.
