Dr Miriam Benedetti

Research Associate

Miriam Benedetti has joined the IfM in October 2016 as a postdoc in the Centre for Industrial Sustainability. She currently works on the Energy and Resource Management Systems for Improved Efficiency in the Process Industries (MAESTRI) project, funded by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 programme, where UCAM is leading the Work Package on Industrial Symbiosis. She has been awarder her PhD in Industrial Engineering at University of Rome Tor Vergata, with a thesis entitled "Energy Performance Management in manufacturing: methodology, tools and framework for targets' setting and consumption control", and holds an MSc in Energy Engineering from the same University. Her main research interests are Industrial Energy Management, Energy and Resources Efficiency, Industrial Symbiosis, Industrial Sustainability, Operations Management, Six Sigma.
