Hi! We are the board members of the ISIE Student Chapter. Feel free to contact us anytime!
We are the representatives of the students in ISIE’s governing bodies. Among our work, we:
The Student Chapter Board is normally composed of six student volunteer members elected by the ISIE student members. The term of a board member is two years, and terms in the board are staggered: each year 3 new board members are elected in October-November to replace retiring board members. During the 2016-2017 term, exceptionally, the board is composed by eight members. One of the remaining board members serves as the president of the board for a single year. This ensures continuity in the Student Chapter. If you are a student member of ISIE, you can become a board member! You'll get a notice about the next elections by e-mail.
I became interested in industrial ecology a couple of years ago during my studies in Brazil, when I could recognize that we can change the relationship that we, as an industrial society, interact with the environment. This interest led me to the Industrial Ecology Student meeting last year, in England, where I was very happy to get in touch with this community for the first time – and I’m really glad it was just the start!
I am Yuwei Qin and I am currently a PhD student in the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where I earned my master’s degree in Environmental Science and Management specializing in Economics and Politics of the Environment and Energy and Climate. I have a B.S. in Environmental Policy and Management with an emphasis on Environmental Economics at the Ohio State University.
I study Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) with an emphasis in assessing uncertainty of LCA results and improving reliability of LCA applications. I am currently working on an environmental and health impact-predicting tool for new chemicals, called Chemical Life Cycle Collaborate (CLiCC), and mainly focusing on the uncertainty and sensitivity analysis of the results. My previous research involves the uncertainty quantification of Ecoinvent data (the world largest LCA database) and the determination of probability distribution of inventory data. As a part of the ISIE student community, I would love to contribute to the development of the growing field of industrial ecology.
My name is Stefanie Klose and I started with my doctoral thesis in the Industrial Ecology Group at Freiburg University in January 2017. Between my studies and my doctoral thesis I got an insight in different organizations like the German Society for International Cooperation and the Institute for Applied Ecology which both work on green development strategies closely connected to politics. I found all these experiences very fruitful since I dealt with sustainable development and the challenges connected to it from different points of view. By doing so, I learnt that a comprehensive view is super important to address challenges sustainably and in the best way. Thus I am very interested in interdisciplinary discussions with the community and I am very happy to be part of the ISIE Student Board supporting an active exchange!
