Research Description: 

My research interests lie in the field of industrial ecology, with a focus on LCA to inform decision-making. I’d like to develop a link between LCA research and industry application that can help inform decision makers in a way that creates sustainable business opportunities that minimize the impact to human health and the environment. If the scientific community can be expected to develop solutions to the world’s challenges that are sustainable, tools and resources will be needed that can inform decisions with access to only limited information and without requiring a crippling amount of time or a financial burden. Collaboration and communication across sectors will be critical to achieve these objectives.
