Marie Hebrok


Marie Hebrok has worked with topics related to sustainable consumption at SIFO since 2011. She is a trained product designer, and has work experience in retail design. She also has a master's degree in technology and science studies from the Center for Technology, Innovation and Culture (TIK) at the University of Oslo, and a doctorate in industrial design from the Department of Design at NTNU. The dissertation "Food Waste: A practice-oriented design for sustainability approach" studies how design can contribute to influencing food practices and reducing food waste. Marie is particularly interested in how the design field can contribute to making consumer practices more sustainable. Thematic areas she works with in ongoing projects are product lifespans, plastics, speculative design, systemic design, and imaginaries of sustainable futures. Other areas of interest and experience include green marketing, aesthetics, waste and digital services.
