Biography

Natasha Järviö completed her master of science in Industrial Ecology at the technical University of Delft and Leiden University, the Netherlands. After completion of her master programme, she moved to Finland and worked some years for the Finnish Environmental Institute (SYKE). Here she used the life cycle assessment (LCA) method to assess resource use of the forest industry. In 2019 she started her PhD at the University of Helsinki. Her she focused on using LCA to quantify the environmental impacts of novel food products, such as microbial protein powder and ovalbumin produced by fungi instead of chickens. Currently she works within the BIODIFUL project (https://biodiful.fi/) quantifying the biodiversity impacts of food products using LCA and environmentally extended multiregion input output analysis. She is interested in regenerative agriculture as a way to combat many environmental impacts associated with food production.
