About

Since October 2006 I am a doctoral research fellow at the Division Forest, Nature and landscape (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium) on a scholarship of VLIR-UOS and in collaboration with the World Agroforesty Centre (ICRAF) – India. My strong interest in the overall environmental impact of tropical bio-energy crops drove me to write a PhD project that focuses on the life cycle assessment of bio-diesel production from Jatropha curcas L., not only covering the energy and greenhouse gas balance but also the land use impact. Since only few is known on this so-called ‘wonderplant’, we also look into its plant physiology, root architecture and land suitability.
