My research work is on multidisciplinary research themes and projects. I am specialized in sustainability, cleaner production, and environmental impact assessment, particularly in the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), with 10+ years of experience and practice, including a wide range of industry-leading software such as GaBi ts, SimaPro, and openLCA. I also hold expert knowledge and acquaintance with the most available life cycle impact assessment databases. Equally well, LCA modeling approaches, inventory data generation, prediction, etc.
I am also specialized in urban environmental resource management with the practice of integrated approaches in sustainability science and life-cycle thinking. Another central function of my expertise is Material Flow Analysis (MFA), inventory analysis, scenario development, and scenario evaluation. Besides, technological assessment of the environmental performance of new technologies, including process modeling, simulation, and optimization.
I have reviewed 125+ peer-reviewed journal articles for 15+ journals. Journals such as the Journal of Cleaner Production, Journal of Environmental Management, and Resources, Conservation, and Recycling. I have also reviewed textbooks and textbook proposals, e.g., for Elsevier, John Wiley & Sons, and the International Journal of Environmental Studies.
I utilize a variety of software for my research work for data analysis, modeling, simulation, and other purposes. Below are the major tools that I use and have expert knowledge with.
