Bernhard Steubing has worked in the field of industrial ecology since 2007. During his Ph.D. at EPFL and Empa he used life cycle assessment (LCA) and agent based modeling to assess the availability of biomass and its optimal use for bioenergy within the context of Switzerland and the European Union. From 2012 to 2015 Bernhard worked at ETH Zurich as a postdoc and later as a senior researcher. During this time he coordinated a project on the optimal use of wood resources, which involved MFA, LCA, and optimization approaches. He also developed the Activity Browser, an open source LCA modeling software that builds upon the brightway2 framework. Through his work in the ecoinvent expert group, Bernhard was actively involved in the development of ecoinvent version 3. In 2015 Bernhard joined CML as a tenure-track assistant professor.
