Graduate Research Assistantship in Industrial Ecology and Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment of Complex Adaptive Systems

Dr. Halog received his doctorate degree in Economic Sciences (with transdisciplinary research focus in Engineering Systems and Sustainability Economics) from the University of Karlsruhe, Germany (TH). He had participated in Advanced Postgraduate Training in Environment and Sustainable Development at the United Nations University (Japan) which covers diverse sustainability/transdisciplinary issues related to urban environment, water resources, natural resources, sustainable enteprise, environmental/climate change, environmental policy and technology at national, regional and global levels. He had been a Visiting Researcher at the National Research Council of Canada where he applied systems approaches (i.e. dynamic systems modeling & simulation) to develop complex systems model for sustainability assessment of novel and innovative technologies in the Canadian Oil Sands industry. He was also involved in reviewing and analyzing published studies in environmental life cycle assessment of bio-products. Before coming to North America, he had been a Visiting Research Fellow at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Tsukuba, Japan with a research agenda of developing and applying quantitative and holistic thinking approaches to environmental life cycle analysis and sustainability assessment. He participated in Sustainability Evaluation in Transboundary Context Training in Estonia, which is sponsored by the European Union and Marie Curie Actions. His current research projects are focused on responding to the challenges of climate change and other relevant sustainable development issues. He has recently received the prestigious Organizational for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Research Fellowship to conduct research in life cycle sustainability assessment of forest bioenergy chain at Finnish Forest Research Institute (METLA), Finland.
