Katya Perez-Guzman is a Postdoctoral Fellow working with the Advanced Systems Analysis program (ASA) at IIASA, in collaboration with CONACYT (Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnologia) Mexico.
Since she was a child, Dr. Perez-Guzman has loved and adored Nature and yearned for a society whose political and economic dynamics are fully integrated into the wonderful biosphere that surrounds us. This clear orientation of her professional life led to her master's degree in Complex Systems and Non-linear Dynamics, and later a PhD, for which she studied the implications of the political economy of oil on a country's carbon dioxide emissions, focusing on Mexico. As a recognized student at Oxford's Latin American Centre, she studied various historical developmental problems of the Latin American region, such as Extractivism. All these topics have come together thanks to the support of the ASA program at IIASA, where Katya will carry out a network analysis of various world input output tables, looking for edge patterns that could characterize the implications of oil extraction on a country’s carbon intensity.
Dr. Perez-Guzman’s wish is that the work that she achieves at IIASA and the collaborations she is involved in will help countries who produce and export oil, like Mexico, to correctly map the challenges and barriers to mitigate climate change, and thus become closer to a future of low carbon development
