Soo Huey Teh

Research Associate

Research Associate in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering's Water Research Centre (WRC)

 

Dr Soo Huey Teh is a Research Associate in the Sustainability Assessment Program in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering. She received a PhD scholarship from the Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living, a collaboration of industry and universities aiming to lower greenhouse gas emissions from the built environment. She has completed several studies on the environmental impacts of construction materials in Australia using hybrid life cycle assessment. Her research interests include: industrial ecology, carbon footprinting, life cycle assessment, environmental input-output analysis, and hybrid life cycle assessment.
