Personal profile

Research interests

Marine litter

I am interested in reducing the plastic waste that accumulates in our oceans. My research focuses on abandoned, lost or otherwise discarded fishing gear (also called derelict fishing gear).

Circular Economy

I am interested in a closed-loop and resource efficient economy for collected marine litter. Specifically, I am investigating alternatives to landfilling and burning of derelict fishing gear.

Life Cycle Assessment

I am interested in Life Cycle Assessment for emerging waste treatment technologies. This is to help decision making for sustainable technologies.
