After finishing an EngD project on measuring the circularity level of bridge designs between 2017 and 2019, I conducted a PhD project on the transition towards a circular infrastructure from a socio-technical perspective. My current research interests focus on the governance and management aspects of societal challenges, missions, and transitions in the civil engineering domain, with special interests in circularity.
