Key Expertise and Skills

Overall, my research work is on multidisciplinary research themes and projects. Nevertheless, I am specialized in environmental impact assessment, particularly in the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) with 8+ years of experience and practice. Including a wide range of industry-leading software such as GoBi t’s, SimaPro, and openLCA. I also hold expert knowledge and acquaintance with most of the available life cycle impact assessment databases. Equally well, LCA modeling approaches, inventory data generation, and prediction, etc.

I am as well specialized in urban environmental resource management, integrated approaches in sustainability science, and life-cycle thinking. Another central function of my expertise is Material Flow Analysis (MFA), inventory analysis, scenario development, and scenario evaluation. Besides, technological evaluation of the environmental performance of new technologies; including process modeling, simulation, and optimization.

Peer-reviews Activities (Journal reviews)

I have reviewed 125+ peer-reviewed journal article for 10+ journals. Journals such as the Journal of Cleaner Production, Journal of Environmental Management, and Resources, Conservation and Recycling. I have also reviewed textbooks and textbooks proposals, e.g., for Elsevier, John Wiley & Sons and the International Journal of Environmental Studies.
