Background

Hessam is an industrial ecology researcher with a background in civil engineering and construction management. His research strives to make the current life cycle modeling and technosphere-ecosphere interactions assessment more accurate, and also to make scientific and industrial communities aware of their own actions on the environment. In this regard, Hessam has been focusing on the symbiosis of various infrastructures, such as pavements and buildings. Learn more by visting Hessam's personal website.
