DL (Linh) Hoang is a PhD student at the Center for Energy and Environmental Sciences (IVEM) - University of Groningen in The Netherlands. She completed her Bachelor of Environmental Sciences in Vietnam National University Hanoi. Inspired by how the industry has been shaping the world development via her first job as a Secretary of Environmental Management System (EMS, ISO 14001), Linh continued her education with a master programme in Industrial Ecology in Sweden and the Netherlands, funded by Erasmus Mundus. In her master thesis, she investigated the supply chain transparency in the Circular Economy. For the PhD program, Linh is working on a project titled Adaptive Logistics in Circular Economy which aims to select viable configurations of value-adding activities related to Biomass and Biogas in a Circular Economy.
