Dr. Arunima Malik
School of Physics
Arunima Malik is a Lecturer at ISA, School of Physics and the Sydney Business School. She coordinates and teaches a number of postgraduate units for the Masters of Sustainability program. Prior to joining the University of Sydney, Arunima has held a range of administrative, research and teaching positions.
Arunima’s research interests include full supply-chain sustainability analysis of introducing new industries in an economy, triple bottom line and footprint assessments, and hybrid life cycle assessments. She has analysed the economic, social and environmental impacts of potential biofuel industries in Australia. Additionally, she has quantified the drivers of a change in global energy use, carbon dioxide emissions and nitrogen emissions using input-output based structural decomposition analysis (SDA). Arunima’s work involves manipulating global and sub-national trade data-sets to assess the environmental, social and economic consequences of human consumption. She also analysed carbon emissions embodied in Australia’s health care sector using comprehensive supply chain models.
