Anthony Halog joined the University of Queensland from the University of Maine, USA where he was an Assistant Professor in Industrial Ecology (2008 – 2012). His research focuses on the sustainability of the human-nature complexity through understanding the nexus of material and energy systems. Over the past years, he has been working on the theoretical foundations and practical applications of Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment (LCSA), Sustainable Production and Operations Management, Corporate Environmental Magement, and Greening Supply Chains. Dr. Halog is interested in the life cycle of manufactured goods—the processes in the form of energy and material flows that are related to transforming raw materials into products and, ultimately, wastes—and in the environmental and economic potential of reuse and recycling activities. Prior to his position at the University of Maine, he was a Professor in Operations Management in the School of Business at Brock University, Canada (2006-2008). Dr Halog has held various positions 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. His qualification in environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) has been officially certified by the American Centre for Life Cycle Assessment (ACLCA) since January 2009.
