Profile photo Francesca Verones

I am an associate professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). I focus on advancing the field of life cycle assessment (LCA) to improve and complement this widely used assessment approach. I mainly work on improving and developing models related to impacts on biodiversity and ecosystems. My current work is related to developing models for projected impacts on aquatic, marine and terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity, due to energy generation (hydropower and wind power), water consumption, land and seabed use, as well as marine plastics. Moreover, I am chair of a task force of the UNEP-SETAC life cycle initiative on cross-cutting issues within Life Cycle Impact Assessment (LCIA) and I am leading the effort to operationalize LC-Impact, a novel, spatially-differentiated LCIA method.
