2010 Postdoc fellows

Jason Blackstock

Jason J. Blackstock focused on evaluating the scientific, political and economic implications of climate engineering (geoengineering) concepts aimed at limiting the negative consequences of climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions. More

Jacob Johansson

Jacob Johansson developed eco-evolutionary models for explaining fundamental patterns of variation in plant community structures. More

Erling Lundevaller

Erling Lundevaller focused on methods for demographic projections, including micro-simulation where the life course of each individual is followed. This allows, inter alia, the spatial-temporal aspects of fertility and mortality to be analyzed, allowing the future composition of populations to be predicted. More

Rupert Mazzucco

Rupert Mazzucco worked on computational models of non-allopatric speciation. More

Upasna Sharma

Upasna Sharma researched issues related to communication of uncertainty associated with climate forecasts and climate hazard warnings, particularly, how the target audience of these forecasts and warnings interpret, understand, and respond to uncertainty. More

Jose Siri

Jose Siri researched how urbanization patterns and urban structure affect the transmission of mosquito-borne disease, and how better understanding of the dispersal of humans, vectors, and infection in this context can lead to more effective and efficient public health policy. More

Edmar Teixeira

Edmar Teixeira focused on the enhancement of the FAO/IIASA Agro-ecological Zones (AEZ) methodology. More

Davnah Urbach

Davnah Urbach, from Switzerland, focused on the evolution of mating traits in harvested fish populations. More
