Alessio is a Research Fellow on the CircularMetal project, which is one of the five interdisciplinary circular economy centers funded by the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) through its Strategic Priorities fund. Coordinated by Brunel University London, the CircularMetal initiative aims to make the United Kingdom the first nation to fully transition to a circular metal economy. His research focuses on three key objectives:

  1. Developing scenarios and roadmaps of how Circular Business Models (CBMs) can enable full metal circulation in the UK by 2050;
  2. Develop CBM archetypes for the metals industry;
  3. Developing, testing, and refining novel CBM design frameworks and tools for the metals industry.

In his role, Alessio works closely with Dr Fabrizio Ceschin, and is a member of Design for Sustainability research group at Brunel University London.
