S. (Shiva) Noori


Shiva is a Ph.D. researcher in the faculty of Technology, Policy and Management, Delft University of Technology. She received her B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Mechanical and Energy Systems Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Iran. Confronting fundamental environmental and energy problems, while working on industrial projects, motivated her toward research on sustainable industrial development. In her Ph.D., she aims to understand the emergent behaviour of industrial clusters under different technical and institutional conditions. She has issued a paper about the technical potential for industrial symbiosis under review. Currently, she is working on modelling the socio-technical structure of industrial clusters in different levels.


Emerging Industrial clusters (EICs) are expected to expand rapidly in the short-term future. Shiva's research aims to understand how this development can be steered on a sustainable path? She applies Industrial Symbiosis (IS) concept to approach the research goal. Her research is designed to uncover potential IS implementation kernels in EICs, understand emergent behaviour of EICs considering their socio-technical structure via ABM modelling and explore scenarios for IS contribution to sustainable development.
