My research and teaching as Professor of sustainability research at UNSW Sydney is based on a long-standing experience in integrated sustainability assessment and environmental footprint analysis. My main research question is how to achieve concurrent human and planetary well-being. I develop and apply environmental input-output modelling as part of a holistic, systems-based concept to life cycle assessment, industrial ecology and sustainable consumption and production research. I lead the Industrial Ecology Virtual Laboratory e-research infrastructure project and coordinate research projects related to sustainability. In 2012 I received the Thomson Reuters Citation Award in Australia and have been listed as Highly Cited Researcher annually since 2015.

Research Interests
