Felipe is an ESR and a PhD candidate at the University of Kassel (UniKassel), Germany. He has a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Fortaleza (Unifor), Brazil. In his Master’s Dissertation, he focused on the dynamics of food production, marketing, and consumption in Alternative Food Networks (AFNs) located in the Brazilian Semiarid region.
As an ESR based at UniKassel, Felipe will focus on risk management in multi-tier circular supply chains. His research will accomplish ReTraCE’s research question on enhancing the sustainability of supply chains and production systems by implementing initiatives (at the micro and meso levels) that considers the circular economy concept. He will also identify the main risks and barriers (from both a technological and relational point of view) to the implementation of these initiatives and explore case studies to understand how companies deal with risks in multi-tier circular supply chains, and which mitigation measures should be implemented.
