Short bio

Lukas Meßmann studied Industrial Engineering at the University of Augsburg from 2011 to 2017. From 2013 to 2017, he was a student and research assistant in the "Closed-Loop Supply Chain Management" working group at the Chair of Production & Supply Chain Management. Since April 2017, he is a research associate.

His research focuses on combining methods of Industrial Ecology, including Life Cycle Assessment, Material Flow Analysis and Social Life Cycle Assessment, with methods of Operations Research (especially multi-criteria optimization) in the field of sustainable supply chain management.

In the area of teaching he is involved in the lectures Sustainable Operations, Industrial Ecology and Introduction to Business Administration as well as in the certification course SAP TS410. He is also responsible for the seminars with IBM ILOG CPLEX.
