AboutAssociate professor in life cycle assessment and sustainable production at NTNU Industrial Ecology, and Head of studies in energy and sustainability at NTNU Faculty of Engineering. I teach industrial ecology and environmental systems analysis to our engineering students, and contribute life cycle thinking and LCA elements in a variety of courses.
DetailsAfter completing PhD in Industrial Ecology in 2007 I have worked with applied life cycle assessment (LCA) to a wide variety of product systems, including oil/gas extraction, transport and infrastructure, and space technologies. I have co-founded and managed an LCA consultancy in Norway and worked as researcher and lecturer in adjunct positions at NTNU, University of Agder (UiA) Department of engineering science, and UiT - The Arctic University of Norway Department of arctic and marine biology. I have also been engaged in the establishment and development of innovation clusters within the aquaculture supply industry, and water technologies. Since 2017 I am employed full time at NTNU, where I am now supervising and co-supervising several PhDs in use of LCA to support circular economy, and in development of impact methods for marine environments.
Research Interests- LCA in support of production and product development
- aquaculture and product manufacturing
- materials production (aluminium, alumina, silicon) and circular economy
