Robert Crawford

 

Dr Robert Crawford has broad research expertise and interest in the built environment, sustainability, life cycle assessment and renewable energy. His research focuses on building environmental assessment, with a particular emphasis on sustainable resource use, the environmentally appropriate selection of materials and sustainable building design and feasibility.

This work has involved improving life cycle assessment methodologies; performing extensive embodied energy/water/emissions assessments of buildings, their components and renewable energy systems; and validation of life cycle assessment methodologies. He is an expert in modelling indirect (embodied) environmental impacts.


Robert teaches in the areas of life cycle assessment, supply chain management and prefabrication in construction. He is also a member of the Executive Committee of the Melbourne Energy Institute and a Member of the Australian Government's Expert Panel on Energy Efficiency in the Built Environment.


The contribution of Robert’s work to the fields of construction and environmental assessment has been demonstrated and acknowledged by various awards. He has also acted as a researcher, consultant and adviser to several State Government departments, research and professional organisations.
