I am an environmental engineer with the vision to erase the concept of waste from our society.
The main axis of my work is the accounting and evaluation of urban resource flows, especially those of bio-based materials such as food and organic waste. I study these flows from a multi-scalar perspective, with a particular focus on circularity and city-hinterland relationships, using tools and approaches from industrial, territorial, and urban ecology. I have always worked in interdisciplinary environments and collaborated with economists, social & political scientists, and geographers.
I am also a keen science communicator and improviser.
