Maud Rio is an Associate Professor at Grenoble Alps University G-SCOP Laboratory, part of the Product Process Design Team. Maud’s research includes developing models and designing methods based on the approach of integrated design to boost environmental performance of product and processes in line with emerging technologies leading to new forms of consumption and production. She is currently the chief investigator of research projects described in personnal website. Maud has co-authored a number of research paper and reports linked with developing methods and tools to integrate ecodesign practices in the productions systems. Increase designers proactivity during the design process of products and services is a key motivation in her research.
Maud is also a lecturer in Mechanical Engineering in IUT’s Mechanical and Manufacturing Technological School of Grenoble (GMP). She is currently the course coordinator for a range of engineering topics related to sustainability, eco-design and life cycle assessment (LCA). In addition, she supervises undergraduate, postgraduate, and master students in related fields, as well as co-supervises PhD students in integrated design.
Other responsibilities include international relationship coordinator for undergraduate students at the IUT GMP.
Prior to this role, Maud has worked two years as a research fellow at RMIT University’s Centre for Design and Society in Australia. She has completed her PhD in 2012 after being graduated in mechanical design engineering and sustainable development in 2009 from the UTT (France).
