I work with prospective life cycle assessment of emerging batteries (eg all-organic battery, sodium ion batteries, organic flow battery...). The goal is to assess the environmental performance of these emerging technologies at a future point in time when they are produced and used on a mass scale; to identify the environmental hotspots along the production chain, and provide potential opportunities to reduce the environmental impacts. 


I assist in teaching and supervision in the following courses:

Life cycle analysis for environmental and water technology, TN0313, SLU 
Materials for sustainable development, 1KB268, UU

Co-supervising master's and bachelor's thesis


My research interests lie in prospective life cycle assessment and metal criticality assessment.  


The first two studies of the PhD were cooperated with researchers from the Nanotechnology and Functional Materials group, at Uppsala University. 


2016-18 Master in Environmental Sciences - Environmental Systems Analysis track, Wageningen University.
