Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Piera Patrizio joined IIASA as a postdoctoral fellow in July in 2016, and is a member of the Ecosystems Services and Management Program (ESM). Her main research interests refer to the economic and environmental optimization of bioenergy supply chains and to the evaluation of the impact of policy instruments on renewable energy technologies development. Her current focus is assessing the potential adoption of carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) solutions in the industrial sector using the BeWhere model (www.iiasa.ac.at/bewhere).
Dr. Patrizio completed her PhD in 2016, at the Energetic Engineering department of the University of Udine (Italy), with a focus on the economic and environmental impact of introducing biogas as a vehicle fuel in the Italian market.
During her PhD studies, she participated in the 2014 Young Scientists Summer Program at IIASA, implementing the techno-economic model BeWhere (www.iiasa.ac.at/bewhere) with a focus on biogas conversion technologies. She further collaborated with ESM, developing a geo-located renewable energy systems platform for Indonesia, under the Tropical Future Initiative (TFI) project.
