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.
A member of the Energy Program since 2015, Dr. Huppmann is the lead developer of the energy system and integrated assessment framework MESSAGEix, an open-source platform for integrated and cross-cutting modeling. This system underpins the MESSAGEix-GLOBIOM Integrated Assessment Model, which is used as the core modeling tool at the Energy Program to explore national and global transformation strategies in the context of climate change and their linkages to a range of sustainable development objectives.
Dr. Huppmann is a Contributing Author and Chapter Scientist of the 2018 Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC SR1.5). His responsibility for the SR1.5 is the compilation of a database of quantitative scenarios (Chapter 2) and the assessment of the interaction across different Sustainable Development Goals (SDG, Chapter 5).
Before joining IIASA's Energy Program in October 2015, Dr. Huppmann was awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship at The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, and worked in the Civil Engineering Department. During this time, he was also affiliated as a Visiting Fellow at the think-tank Resources for the Future (RFF), Washington D.C. Before his research sojourn in the US, he worked at the Department of Energy-Transportation-Environment at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin), Germany.
Dr. Huppmann graduated with a doctorate in economics from Technical University Berlin after successfully completing the structured PhD program at DIW Berlin, defending his dissertation summa cum laude in June 2014. He also studied Mathematics at the Vienna University of Technology, where he earned an MSc degree in 2010.
