Personal profile

Personal information

Anna Liza Bais-Moleman is a postdoctoral researcher in sustainable agriculture. She is currently coordinating the VITAL project. Her research focuses on quantifying the potential contribution of different sustainable (agriculture) intensification pathways focusing on production- and consumption-side measures at EU level. During her doctoral studies, she systematically explored the socio-economic benefits and ecological costs of biomass use and bioenergy systems using combinations of different sustainability impact assessment tools such as Material- and Energy Flow Analysis (MEFA), Human Appropriation of Net Primary Production (HANPP), Energy Return on Energy Invested (EROEI) and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) at global and European levels. She was involved in a CASTLE (Careers in Sustainability Excellence) project funded by European Union’s programme called Marie Curie Actions- ITN.
