Dr. Rupert J. Myers is a Postdoctoral Associate in Prof. Thomas E. Graedel's group at the Center for Industrial Ecology. He has a Ph.D. in Materials Science & Engineering from the University of Sheffield, is a chemical engineer by training, and has several years of research and consulting experience across industry, academia, and government.
His research is focused towards understanding and improving the system-wide sustainability, chemistry, durability and performance of industrial materials, in particular cement-related materials and metals. Dr. Myers has a keen interest in developing more sustainable materials science and technology. He is currently researching the life cycles and criticality of metals and metalloids, which includes creating tools to more effectively analyze and store quantitative material stocks and flows data.
Rupert is leading the development of a holistic and comprehensive open-access database to archive Yale's Stocks and Flows (STAF) data (NSF Grant #1636509).
He is also researching the future supply and demand of scarce metals in the U.S. context up to 2050 with the Critical Materials Institute.
