Brandon Kuczenski

University of California, Santa Barbara

Brandon Kuczenski is an associate researcher studying industrial ecology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. His research concerns how the outcomes of environmental sustainability assessments can be reviewed, verified, and shared with stakeholders and the public. His interests include efficient computation and documentation of life cycle assessment results, techniques to protect the privacy of confidential information during publication, and improving the transparency and accessibility of inventory data. He also studies the environmental implications of waste management, recycling, and extended producer responsibility.
