BAUERNSCHUSTER Sonja

Email Address: sonja.bauernschuster(at)boku.ac.at

Sonja’s PhD revolves around the forest transition in the Lao PDR. This work enables her to pursue her interest in hidden patterns and causes of observed phenomena by studying the socio-metabolic processes that cause ongoing reforestation processes.

BRENNER Anna-Katharina

Email Address: anna.brenner(at)boku.ac.at

After working on environmental justice matters in Austria in my Master's Thesis,  a short trip to the Sociology Department, working on urban transitions and social policies in the light of environmental governance, I now close the circle by investigating the feasibility of alternative resource use patterns in the Metropolitan Region Vienna-Bratislava. Hence, my focus is on peri-urban governance structures enabling or hindering sustainability transitions.

NOLL Dominik

Email Address: dominik.noll(at)boku.ac.at

My Ph.D. project is focused on the environmental implications of the transformation of rural, agriculturally shaped regions in the course of industrialization. I am specialized on the social metabolism of rural communities on islands or other remote regions. By applying a stock driven approach towards biophysical accounting, I focus mainly on the assessment of environmental pressures associated with the dynamics of the built environment and livestock systems. My study areas are in Samothraki, Greece and Alentejo, Portugal.

PLANK Barbara

Email Address: barbara.plank(at)boku.ac.at

Barbara tries hard to understand the magnitude and functionality of the complete social metabolism (inputs/outputs, flows/stocks, production/consumption) and is heavily working on finding a compromise between the two extremes technological solutions and sufficiency. For that major challenge, many available tools (material flow analysis, input-output analysis, dynamic stock modelling, statistics/econometrics) can be of use for her.
