Projects per year
My research focuses on sustainable product development, including both environmental and social aspects.
The social side of my research is about participative design and "making" as a way to enable sustainable consumption and production patterns. I specifcally focus on Open Source Hardware (OSH), that is, "products whose design are made publicly available so that anyone can study, modify, distribute, make, and sell them". I strive to:
- show the utopia of OSH; describe the phenomenon in mechanical engineering terms and make it visible in the scientific and public debate;
- investigate existing implementations of OSH; characterize the specific challanges faced by these OSH projects in terms of product development;
- understand open source product developemnt enough to develop supporting tools for the further development of this paradigma.
The enviromnenal side is about ecodesign. In the precedent years of research, I covered research topics like: remanufacturing, energy efficiency of electric and electronic products, environmental assessment of ICT-based services, energy efficiency of production systems, ecolabelling and product modularization.
I graduated in 2006 in IT engineering and worked a few years in a global IT services company implementing Product Data Management solutions for clients of the automotive sector. Following a strong ecological drive, I started in 2009 my doctoral studies on sustainable product design at the University of Grenoble with Prof. Daniel Brissaud. I widened the spectrum of my research from 2012 on, at the time I took a coordinative role in the collaborative research center 1026 "Sustainable Manufacturing", led by Prof. Rainer Stark at the Technische Universitaet Berlin. I am Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Bath since 2018.
