01/08/2022 | Jorge Gómez-Paredes started at ZEU as visiting professor
We are very pleased to welcome Jorge Gómez-Paredes, PhD as the first visiting professor of the SDG Nexus Network at JLU. His research focuses on ecological economics, industrial ecology, and political ecology, with a particular interest in understanding complex socio-economic systems, analyzing spillover effects, and assessing sustainable consumption and production based on value chain analyses (Input-Output & Life-Cycle Assessments). He has applied this approach to calculate virtual water exports, labor footprints, greenhouse gas emissions reductions, and the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. At JLU he will be teaching an introductory course on sustainable development from the perspective of complex systems, and researching on the application of macroeconomic models for SDG nexus analyses.
