PhD position in LCA of infrastructure and materials

I am excited to announce an LCA-focused PhD position at the beautiful University of Maine - Orono campus, just an hour away from Acadia National Park!  Prospective students could pursue their degree at this R1 research institution either through the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering or the Ecology and Environmental Sciences program.  
Prospective students are encouraged to fill out this brief Google Form or contact me directly, Applications are rolling, and students could begin as early as January 2024.
My team will identify technologies that can be deployed at scale which have the potential to 'tilt the needle' towards confronting environmental crises. There is a strong interest at UMaine across centers like the Advanced Structures & Composites Center in reducing the environmental footprint of infrastructure and materials. LCA is a powerful tool to assess the extent to which reductions are being achieved and identify opportunities for improvement.  
My team will chiefly work with researchers at UMaine who are developing innovative technologies using advanced manufacturing processes to cleverly enhance infrastructure and material systems.  Current technologies under development at UMaine include: large-scale additive manufacturing (such as bio-based 3D printed home), lightweight composite bridges'Bridge-in-a-Backpack TM' composite arches, commercialization of mass timber, production of cellulose nanomaterialselimination of PFAS, and much more.
