Amelie joined CML as a PhD candidate at the end of 2022 at the department of Industrial Ecology. Her research focuses on the refinement of Life Cycle Assessment methodology for the forest sector.
Amelie obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences (Major Environmental Sciences) from the Albert-Ludwigs-University in Freiburg, Germany, in 2020. Her bachelor thesis at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems investigated the environmental impacts of PV modules with different designs and production locations. In 2022, Amelie graduated from the joint Master’s program Industrial Ecology from Leiden University and TU Delft. During her Master’s, she specialized in quantitative environmental assessment tools, such as Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Environmental Input-Output Analysis (EIOA) and Material Flow Analysis (MFA). She conducted her master thesis in collaboration with the Institute for Networked Energy Systems of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and investigated decarbonization pathways for the global cement industry using prospective Life Cycle Assessment.
In late 2022, Amelie started a PhD at the Department of Industrial Ecology of CML in cooperation with the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) in Belgium.
Amelie’s PhD research focuses on the Life Cycle Assessment methodology for forest-based products. She will improve the integration of biogenic carbon uptake in LCA methodology and open-source LCA software. Furthermore, she will investigate future production scenarios for the European forest sector using prospective LCA. Her PhD is part of the Horizon Europe project ForestPaths.
