Roland Geyer

Associate Professor (Industrial Ecology, Production and Operations Management)

Born and educated in Germany, where he was trained in engineering and physics, Roland Geyer came to the Bren School in 2003 and now teaches courses in production and operations management, and in the emerging field of industrial ecology. Geyer is interested in the life cycle of manufactured goods—the processes in the form of energy and material flows that are related to transforming raw materials into products and, ultimately, waste—and in the environmental and economic potential of reuse and recycling activities. He also studies the evolution of green business plans, a model that relates corporate financial performance to corporate environmental performance. Geyer has worked extensively as an advisor to the steel industry as it evolves and creates better products that can be made with fewer resources.
