I am an Adjunct Professor for Industrial Ecology at the Norwegian University of Science & Technology NTNU, a lecturer for Prospective Environmental Assessment at ETH Zurich, and a project manager for Sustainable Construction at the city of Zurich. Furthermore, I am an Associate Editor for Data at the Journal of Industrial Ecology.
My research focuses on the analysis and forecast of environmental impacts of socio-economic systems, such as building stocks. In my work I often combine methods and tools from the environmental and computational science disciplines to develop, for instance, probabilistic approaches for big data analysis.

Mandated by the G7 and United Nations International Resource Panel (UNEP-IRP) , we are investigating the potential benefits of Resource Efficiency for future greenhouse gas emissions. Project ends 2019. Find related content and publications here.
In 2010 the Swiss National Science Foundation launched athe National Research Programme 66 to investigate the potentials of wood as a national resource. The team led by Prof. Hellweg investigated the ecological implications of wood use. The project had a budget of 1 million Swiss Francs and brought forward three PhDs. I was lucky enough to be one of those PhD students and my project looked into the ecological potentials of wood use in buildings.
