Associate Professor/Associate Head, Division of Public Policy, HKUST
Prof. Matus is an Associate Professor in the Division of Public Policy and the Division of Environment and Sustainability at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Her research focus is at the intersection of innovation, sustainability science, and public policy, focusing on sustainable production-consumption systems. A large portion of her research is on how policy interacts with the development and implementation of "green" technologies in supply chains, especially those that include the production and/or use of chemicals. She also researches the circumstances under which new technologies allow for, and sometimes even demand, new approaches to policy on the part of public, private and civil society actors. She also has a longstanding interest in the use of scientific expertise in the policy process, especially in relation to sustainability issues.
