Kaisa Grönman works as a post doctoral researcher in the department Sustainability Science.
She has graduated as a Doctor of Science (Tech.) in 2013. Her dissertation examined the development of sustainable food packaging systems specially in regards of avoiding food waste. In addition to the thesis-related projects considering food packages, she has worked in various initiaves concerning life cycle thinking and modelling, waste management and design for environment. Most recently she has been focusing on developing methodologies for environmental impact assessment. Kaisa Grönman was one of the key researchers in creating the carbon handprint approach to assess the positive climate impacts of products. Prior to that, she co-developed the nutrient footprint methodology. In addition to research projects, she has gained experience in teaching and acquiring funding.

Research Interest
Current research concentrates on creation of handprint methodology, an indicator and calculation tool to promote positive environmental impacts.
Research interest also include: relation of packages, food waste and environmental impacts; life cycle assessment; design for environment

Teaching Experience
Currents teaching includes supervising Master's and Bacholor theses as well as coordination in courses Technical Cycle in Circular Economy and Ympäristötekniikan perusteet (Basics of Environmental Technology).
