Dr. Anthony Halog

University of Queensland - Australia

Anthony Halog is a University Lecturer at the University of Queensland. His research focuses on the sustainability of human-nature complexity through understanding the nexus of material and energy systems. Over the years, he has been working on the foundation and industrial applications of Circular Economy, Greening Supply Chains, Life Cycle Assessment, Sustainable Operations, Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment (LCSA), and Resource Management & Bioeconomy. His Research Group in Industrial Ecology and Circular Economy at UQ (http://industrialece.wixsite.com/main)  endeavours to provide service/expertise for industry clients (e.g. agri-food-energy systems) in transforming existing linear system-based value chains and operations towards circularity, which enhances their resource efficiency & productivity, creates added value products from wastes, and reduces emissions into the environment for a more sustainable consumption and production in the future. He is keen in pursuing collaborative and cross-disciplinary research across industries via system analysis and modelling.  Previously, he held academic positions at the University of Maine (USA) and Brock University (Canada). Dr Halog has held other positions such as Visiting Faculty Fellow at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory of US Department of Energy, USA; as an Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Research Fellow at the Finnish Forest Research Institute; as Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan and at the University of Tokyo; and as an Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the National Research Council of Canada. He completed his PhD from the Institute for Industrial Production/French-German Institute for Environmental Research at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany. He participated in sustainability assessment-related courses at the United Nations University, Japan and Vienna University of Economics and Business, Austria. Dr. Halog has authored and co-authored more than 70 publications and presented papers in industrial ecology and circular economy, and has been a visiting scholar in several leading research institutions in Europe and Asia. He has given keynote talks worldwide to share his expertise in greening supply chains, circular economy and industrial sustainability.
