I am a qualified Civil Engineer and after graduating in 2006 with a PhD in Environmental Management and Psychology I re-joined CEG in 2011 as a senior researcher. I spent more than 8 years as company director, consultant and trainer of business leaders worldwide. In academia I develop and apply social, engineering and management methodologies to increase the profitability and understanding of industrial and urban processes. My projects have been assessed independently and received highest possible ratings for the transfer of technical and management knowledge. I have designed and delivered training courses and consulted local and multinational companies from the construction to the banking sector. My work enhances the research and training of science, engineering and managerial knowledge as they are directly relevant to businesses and governmental organisations.
I develop new approaches to model and manage resources and flows using e.g. life cycle assessment, industrial ecology and standardised systems in urban environments. I aim to provide researchers and decision makers a system-scale understanding of the inter-relationships between resource mapping and resource use in cities in relation to climate mitigation and adaptation, technologies and the built environment.
