With a background in marine biology, Patrik was introduced to LCA during his masters and has since developed a comprehensive approach towards tackling uncertainties around LCA results and product footprints, including the carbon footprint, water footprint, etc. Aquaculture became the natural overlap between aquatic ecosystems and the technosphere. Given that most aquaculture farming is situated in Asian, Patrik spends ample amounts of time visiting different actors in the Asian aquaculture value chain.

As part of his post-doc, Patrik aim to incorporate social and economic aspects in the Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment (LCSA) framework. This will be done using aquaculture in Bangladesh and the Sardine fishery in the Strait of Bali as case studies.
