Oliver Taherzadeh

PhD Researcher, Department of Geography, University of Cambridge

I combine macro-economic and resource use data on 250 million supply chains to assess the global environmental burden of different countries, sectors and consumers. My PhD reveals which actors and activities are critical to the reduction of water, energy, and land use, in individual countries and globally.

Prior to starting my PhD, I worked as a researcher in the Sustainable Consumption and Production Group at the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI).
