Vlad C. Coroamă
Lecturer of digitalisation and sustainability at TU Berlin
Dr. Vlad C. Coroamă is a lecturer and senior research fellow with the TU Berlin, Germany. He previously held research and teaching positions in Brazil, Switzerland, Portugal, and Sweden. For two decades now, his research revolved around the relation between digitalisation and sustainability, in particular environmental sustainability. He contributed both methodologically, and with concrete assessments, to understanding the environmental impact of ICT in general and the Internet in particular. Vlad believes that climate change is the most urgent challenge of our times, and one of the greatest challenges ever faced by humankind. This is why today, his main research interest lies in exploring whether and how digitalisation can lead to society-wide dematerialisation and resource efficiency, and how to best exploit this potential, while understanding and avoiding the counteracting rebound effects.
