Research Expertise & Interests

I am interested to in multidisciplinary sustainability science research—notably, how to attain “win-win” solutions to the contemporary’s most complex, and substantiasubstantial environmental issues. I am likewise concerned about integrated life-cycle methodological approaches and concepts to accelerate the transformation from conventional resource management to effective systems. My present research interests include, e.g., cleaner production; energy production and consumption; resource use; sustainability indicators; urban and regional planning; management of Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE); hazardous materials, process simulation, modeling, and development; resource efficiency; resource management; circular economy; impact assessment of chemical synthesis; and environmental policy.
