I hold a Master degree in Biomathematics and have experience in dynamic modelling of biofuel production.


My research is focusing on life cycle perspective and systems optimization of the use of woody biomass for energy and material purposes to reduce primary energy use and net emission of greenhouse gases. Forest, or ultimately the land on which it is grown, is a limited resource that may be used so it gives the greatest possible benefits for society. One of the important benefits that forests can provide is mitigation of climate change. To design woody bioenergy and biomaterial strategies to maximize climate change mitigation, the complete energy and material chains from the forest land to the final services in the society have to be considered. For this, transparent and dynamic models has to build up to identify the time-dependent pattern of emissions reductions for alternative bioenergy sources.
