AboutMarie Curie Fellow and joint PhD student at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and Ghent University (UGent) as a part of the H2020 MSCA Circular Plastics Network for Training (C-PlaNeT). Currently researching how accurate accounting of additives within plastics through LCA can improve planning for circular economy transitions.
DetailsI am a Marie Curie Fellow and Joint PhD student currently mapping the flows of additive enriched plastics (films, foils, products, and textiles) using LCA and MFA. I am investigating how we can improve the accounting of plastic chemical compositions to increase the circularity potential of plastics and mitigate the environmental impact of plastic waste streams. With a background in environmental sustainability and teaching in higher education, I am interested in how we teach, communicate, and develop LCA methodologies to help inform decision-making and sustainability transitions. After a decade in the textile and fashion industry, I have a particular interest in LCA for the textile industry. Specifically, I am interested in how we model processes and create accurate, accessible, and open-source databases for the textiles industry.
