Ecosystem Services in Life Cycle Assessment: A Computational Framework for Absolute and Regional Sustainability

Xinyu Liu

The Ohio State University

Xinyu Liu is a 5th year Ph.D. candidate from the Ohio State University working in Dr Bhavik Bakshi's group. Her work focuses on enhancing environmental sustainability by fostering synergies between technological and ecological systems. She developed a framework and the associated computational structure to explicitly consider the role of ecosystem service in life cycle assessment, with the aim for supporting economically-superior and environmentally-beneficial decision making. 


Traditional development has taken nature for granted. Consequently, even the most sustainable engineering methods do not explicitly consider the role of ecosystem goods and services (ES). This is the root cause for ecosystem... [ view full abstract ]
