Professor of Industrial Ecology at University of Southern Denmark


I am an enthusiastic industrial ecologist and my research aims to map the anthropogenic/socioeconomic metabolism and inform its sustainability transition through understanding materials and energy flows and their associated environmental consequences in a systems context, in particular for case studies of metal cycles, agrifood chains, urban systems, and low-carbon technologies.

I have published 80 articles in journals such as Nature, Nature Climate Change, and Environmental Science & Technology (won 2013 Best Article) and was awarded the prestigious Robert A. Laudise medal by the International Society for Industrial Ecology for my “outstanding contributions to the field of industrial ecology”.

Research Interests

Material/substance flow analysis; Sustainable resource and waste management; Urban metabolism & infrastructure stocks; Climate change mitigation (material-energy-emission nexus); Industrial ecology.
