Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology
I am a PhD candidate at MIT Portugal in Lisbon while working for Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology. I come from New Zealand and my research interests include ecological economics, Life Cycle Assessment, and circular economy. In 2015 I completed my master's degree with an endorsement in Life Cycle Assessment. Following this I bicycled (and sailed) from New Zealand to Europe in one year. During this trip I cycled 15,000 kilometres and sailed 3000 nautical miles through 23 countries. The journey exposed me to some harsh negative social and ecological impacts. Those experiences have shaped my philosophy towards strong sustainability.
