André is an Assistant Professor in Engineering, Environment and Sustainable Development at the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom.
André has been working on the identification of feasible opportunities to deliver our future needs for transport and buildings without emissions. He has recently developed dynamic material flow analyses to anticipate the future demand, use and disposal of cars, buildings, plastics and steel in the UK, and fertilisers globally. These models quantify the trade-offs and emissions reduction potential of alternative interventions over time.
André is exploring new ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions at a faster pace to meet international climate pledges. This involves identifying new configurations of energy and material systems to supply our future needs with less demand and emissions.
