- Brief profile
My passion for LCA and Life Cycle Thinking started mid of the 1990s when I joined ifu – The Hamburg Institute for Environmental IT (www.ifu.com) as a student. Between 2005 and 2010 I worked part-time at the Centre for Sustainability Management at Leuphana University, broadening my knowledge in corporate sustainability management and extending my global network of dedicated sustainibility changemakers with a focus on Latin America. Today, I’m a partner at ifu responsible for strategy and collaboration. I also contribute as a German delegate to the development of international standards of the ISO 14 000 series including, ISO 14051, ISO/TS 14067, ISO/TS 14071, ISO/TS 14072 etc.

- Subject area?
I would be most interested to work with mentees doing a not too technical research, life cycle information, communication, life cycle management, but also topics which require to work inter- and transdisplinary like life cycle costing or monetization of environmental impacts are interesting.
I would also see as part of my role to point a mentee to the technical experts, recommend and create links to other professionals, both academics and practicioners.
As I have been a mentor before I unterstand a mentoring process as a mutual learning experience.
