My research focus lies in the area of sustainable packaging development. 
I am especially interested in the role of packaging for the development of sustainable food supply chains. Prior to my PhD studies, I have worked for several years with life cycle assessment (LCA) in the packaging industry.

In the first part of my doctoral thesis, I have analyzed packaging development processes in the food and manufacturing industry to compare theoretical concepts of green packaging development with their practical application. During the second half, I have focused on the question of how to balance different environmental requirements on food packaging.
