My name is Luca Fraccascia. I am Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer, Control, and Management Engineering "Antonio Ruberti" (DIAG) of Sapienza University of Rome and appointed as Guest Researcher at the Department of Industrial Engineering and Business Information Systems (IEBIS) of the University of Twente (The Netherlands). My research interests are Industrial Symbiosis, Circular Economy, Input-Ouput Models, Agent-based modeling, Economic Complexity, and Smart Cities.
I hold my Master Degree in Management Engineering and my PhD in Mechanical and Management Engineering at Politecnico di Bari (Italy). My PhD thesis was focused on how to support the emergence of self-organized industrial symbiosis networks and their sustainability over a long period. Before I started my current position, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Politecnico di Bari (Italy), and postdoctoral researcher and assistant professor at University of Twente.
My research is aimed at supporting companies to enhance their environmental sustainability. Respecting and protecting the environment is not just an ethical choice but a duty, if we are willing to respect the future generations!
