Read how IIASA works with research partners across the globe to deliver world-class research.
Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Adriana Gomez-Sanabria joined the IIASA Air Quality and Greenhouse Gases (AIR) Program in June 2015. She has expanded the existing waste and wastewater sector in the GAINS model in order to explicitly quantify material and energy flows. She is simulating various policy interventions targeted at reducing the environmental impacts resulting from waste and wastewater (GHGs, air and water pollution) as a consequence of society’s metabolism.
Ms. Gomez-Sanabria has a BSc and an MSc in Environmental and Health Engineering from La Salle University, Colombia as well as an MSc in Forestry from the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Austria.
Her previous experiences include positions as a technician in the field of air quality and treatment of hazardous waste in Colombia. She then worked at a recognized NGO (Natura Foundation) in a REDD project with the Environmental Ministry and other governmental institutions in Colombia. She carried out research work on illicit crop monitoring in Colombia (internship at the UNODC in Vienna, Austria). She then worked as a consultant for the IAEA in Vienna, Austria followed by an internship with UBIMET, a private company in the field of meteorology, where she was involved in ArcGIS, data management and statistical data analysis.
