Personal profile

Research interests

Project Manager in the project “New packaging solutions for people, planet and business, Package-Heroes”. Package-Heroes searches for packaging solutions, which address simultaneously food protection and the global and constantly increasing concern of plastic packaging waste. The project addresses this challenge by co-creating sustainable food packaging solutions, based on recyclable and biodegradable wood fibre materials and new food delivery, consumption, and recycling concepts.
