First Lecture

Title: Environmentally Extended Multi-Regional Input-Output analysis to find hotspots in global environmental impact
Speaker: Bertram de Boer (CML)
Bertram is a PhD student in de department of Industrial Ecology at CML. At the moment, his research focus is on assessing the global environmental impact of Swedish consumption, and exploring options to alleviate this burden. In the future he intends to investigate how to incorporate sub-national data into EXIOBASE, one of the most comprehensive environmentally-extended multi-regional input–output models (EEMRIO) currently available.

Second Lecture

Title: Molecular cloud tomography
Speaker: Alvaro Hacar Gonzalez (Leiden Observatory)
Alvaro is a postdoc researcher and an NWO-VENI laureate in the Leiden Observatory. His VENI project focuses on answering the question if light stars are born in the same way as heavy stars in the constellation Orion. He wants to combine new radio observations of the Orion cloud with innovative measuring techniques. Current theories about the birth of light and heavy stars can be tested with these new results. Hacar aims at unravelling how most of the stars in our Milky Way are born.
