Antonia Loibl joined the competence center “Sustainability and Infrastructure Systems” at Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI as a researcher in 2018. Her research focus is on the quantification and depiction of raw material cycles and their development over time on global and regional scale. This includes the analysis of recycling flows with recycling rates and identification of current barriers and further potentials but also the relationship between raw material supply and demand, especially in the context of future technologies and questions of supply security. The research work is always embedded in the discussion around sustainability and circular economy and the connected system transformation.
Before becoming a researcher at Fraunhofer ISI, Antonia Loibl studied chemistry at Freie Universität Berlin and University of Western Australia, Perth. During her studies she was supported by a merit-based scholarship from the Cusanuswerk.
Between 2013 and 2017 she worked as a research and teaching assistant in the area of NMR spectroscopy and inorganic chemistry at FU Berlin. In 2017 she obtained a PhD in chemistry from Freie Universität Berlin with research work in organophosphorus and metalorganic synthetic chemistry.
