Meet Joris - a sustainability practitioner with a passion for securing a future that is environmentally sustainable, socially just, and economically thriving. His PhD is developing advanced life cycle assessment (LCA) methods that help determine the future impacts of automotive technology. With a MSci and MSc from UCL in Physical Sciences and Engineering, Joris works with startups, think tanks, and large businesses across various industries such as construction, consumer goods, and technology to implement sustainability strategies.

Joris is a 2021 Alumni of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's "From Linear to Circular" programme and Founder & Trustee at Editors for Impact. He also contributed to Degrees of Change in the past and led the largest Engineers Without Borders branch at UCL.

Beyond his work, Joris is an advocate for physical and mental health, and he enjoys practicing triathlon, martial arts, and mindfulness. He also leads a plant-based lifestyle and loves spending time in nature and playing classical guitar. His morning ritual is simple but satisfying - freshly ground coffee beans!

Joris has recently published papers on his research journey.
