Duncan Kushnir

Forskare at Chalmers, Technology Management and Economics, Environmental Systems Analysis

Current Projects:REALIZE - Realizing advanced resource efficient vehicle recycling. Working with a consortium of major companies and labour unions to assess and implement solutions for advanced vehicle recycling in Sweden. Work package leader for assessing the innovation system, including R&D and business model needs and opportunities. Photon UpDown Conversion - Early environmental and innovation assessment in solar material development. Working with materials development groups at Chalmers and providing environmental assessment and patent landscaping assistance to better target R&D efforts in next generation solar material development. Industrial - Internal lifecycle modeling for electric vehicles and battery recycling. Working with a major vehicle manufacturer to help produce knowledge on recycling processes, perform lifecycle analysis on electric vehicle related process solutions, and to produce guidelines for battery module design. Other duties:I currently supervise Master's degree thesis workers, and have good experience executing environmental thesis projects with industrial partners.Lecturer & Course Assistant.
