Professor Goretty Dias has a background in natural sciences and engineering. Recently, her work has focused on sustainability and life cycle assessment (LCA) of dietary patterns, Canadian agriculture products, and bioenergy. Her research interests lie in the use of LCA and other sustainability assessment tools to analyze various agricultural and biobased product systems in order to create more sustainable agriculture and food systems.
