Senior Research Fellow
Stockholm Environment Institute
Michael is part of the Trase team at SEI (trase.earth) with which he is developing supply chain maps in South America to link deforestation for commodity production to global supply chains. His past research has focused on the implications of soybean and cattle production options on the water cycle in Amazonia using both ecohydrology and supply chain impact assessment modeling. He has prior experience in product and river basin water footprint assessments, for which he measured water use for cropland and proposed new models for water use in life cycle assessment. He has also spent several years studying the Pantanal wetland’s carbon biogeochemistry with a focus on CO2 and CH4 emissions.
