Food and agriculture sector contributes significantly to the environmental impacts caused by human activities. In particular climate change need to be reduced urgently, so a shift towards sustainable agri-food systems is crucial.
In recent years Life Cycle Assessment methodology has become an essential tool to quantify the environmental impact asociated to different stages of the food supply chain and to support decision making in order to find the possible directions to sustainable food production and consumption patterns
Position: Postdoctoral researcher
Main Research Field: GHG emissions and other environmental impacts associated to agri-food systems through LCA methodology
