I am Head of the 'Advancing Life Cycle Assessment' Group at Empa in St. Gallen. I have a PhD from ETH in Zürich. After 3 years of experience in the ecology department of a private company I joined Empa in 2000. As an LCA specialist, I was involved in numerous LCA studies dealing with ‘ICT’, and since 6 years also with ‘nanotechnology’. I am currently the president of the board of ecoinvent (the database for LCA background data), having contributed to its content & management in various positions since 2001.
