Reinout Heijungs graduated in 1987 in theoretical physics from Groningen University. For three years he was lecturer in physiology at the Medical Faculty of Leiden University. Research was directed towards chaotic analysis of noisy time series. He then moved to the Institute of Environmental Sciences at Leiden University. Research focused on the development of life cycle assessment, and related theories on the boundary of economics and the environment.
In 1997 he received his PhD for the thesis entitled Economic Drama and the Environmental Stage, which has been reissued as A Theory of the Environment and Economic Systems, at Edward Elgar Publishing. After taking PhD, he spent a four-years research period at the Department of Spatial Economics of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
Until 2013 he was lecturer and researcher in environmental science at CML, with an emphasis on foundational and methodological aspects of models for the interaction of economy and environment. His main interest is the development and application of mathematical, statistical, computational and philosophical methods in environmental systems analysis, including LCA, SFA, and E-IOA.
