Tiago G. Morais is currently a PhD student at Instituto Superior Técnico - University of Lisbon (Portugal) in collaboration with the Institute for Social Ecology - AlpenAdriaUniversität Klagenfurt (Austria). In his PhD, Tiago Morais is studying the sustainability of human diets, namely sustainable livestock production and how it affects carbon and nitrogen cycling agroecosystems using scale-consistent approaches (i.e. can be applied at farm or regional scales). His main domain of specialization is environmental assessment applied to the agri-food sector, in particular, using Life Cycle Assessment. He produced a scale-consistent agri-food Life Cycle Inventory for Portugal. He also developed several Life Cycle Impact Assessment models for land use impacts using soil organic carbon depletion at regional (European Union) and global scales.


Objective: The goal of Project ModelMeat is to develop a decision support service (DSS) for integrated sustainability management in the extensive livestock production sector, starting with a sample of 1,000 farmers in... [ view full abstract ]
