Postdocs funded by other sources

Fulvio Di Fulvio (ESM) started his Postdoctoral fellowship at IIASA in August 2014. His research interests include the modeling and optimization of forest fuelwood procurement in order to analyze the integration of forest biomass with the supply of other wood products and biomass from dedicated energy-wood plantations. Dr. Di Fulvio obtained his PhD in Forest Technologies from the University of Tuscia, Italy. During his PhD he studied the potentials and procurement costs of small trees as energy-wood from forest thinnings in collaboration with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU). He then worked as a Post doc and as a Researcher at SLU in the Departments of Forest Resource Management and Forest Biomaterials and Technology with a focus on analysis of innovative systems for fuelwood procurement from forest management, marginal lands and dedicated energy-wood plantations.

Eva-Maria Nordström (ESM) started her Postdoctoral fellowship at IIASA in November 2011. Until 2013 she continued to develop her research on scenario analysis for the forest sector where she concentrated on global and local analysis with a focus on Scandinavia and Sweden. In addition, Dr. Nordström was the focal point of ESM's collaboration with the Future Forests Program of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU).

Erling Lundevaller (POP) focused on methods for demographic projections. One such method is micro-simulation where the life course of each individual is followed. For example, this allows for analysis of spatial-temporal aspects of fertility and mortality and can also be used to predict future composition of populations.     

PhD in Statistics (2002) from the Umea University, Sweden

Funding Source: Kempe Foundation, Sweden


Mats Bodin (EEP) used adaptive dynamics techniques to study the evolutionary consequences of harvesting on maturation size and other inheritable traits in fish. His research is also part of the European Research Training Network on Fisheries-induced Adaptive Changes in Exploited Stocks (FishACE).             

PhD in Mathematics (2006) from the University of Umea, Sweden

Funding Source: European Commission


Ake Brannstrom (EEP) worked on the evolutionary effects of harvesting on food webs as part of the European Research Training Network on Fisheries-induced Adaptive Changes in Exploited Stocks (FishACE).      

PhD in Mathematics (2004) from the University of Umea, Sweden

Funding Source: European Commission


Terence Fell (FOR) is involved with the analysis of forestry management’s institutional performance in local community settings. His research focused on the institutional mismatch between formal natural resource management policies,  and the informal rules that are in use in local community contexts.  

PhD in Political Science (2006) from Lulea University of Technology, Sweden

Funding Source: Kempe Foundation, Sweden

                          


Adam Kun (EEP) studied the evolution of cooperation in populations with unequal distributions of economic wealth as part of the Evolution and Cooperation in Heterogeneous Spatial Games project.

PhD in Evolutionary Biology and Ecology (2003) from Eötvös Lorand University, Hungary

Funding Source: Austrian Science Fund (FWF)


Shuichi Matsumura (EEP) worked on spatial modeling of interactions between anglers and fish populations as part of the Adaptive Dynamics and Management of Coupled Social-Ecological Recreational Fisheries (Adaptfish) project.    

Doctor of Science in Biology (1995) from Kyoto University, Japan

Funding Source: Leibnitz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB), Germany


Johan Östergren (EEP) looked into eco-genetic modeling of human-induced (i.e. dams and fisheries) evolution in anadromous fish in general, and with a particular interest in sea trout. His other research interests include fish ecology, fisheries management, and population genetics.

PhD in Biology (2007) from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences,  Umea, Sweden

Funding Source: Kempe Foundation, Sweden


Emma Terama (POP) developed multi-state population projections for the future of religions worldwide. 

Doctor of Science in Technology (2007) from Helsinki University of Technology, Finland

Funding Source: Academy of Finland


Davnah Urbach (EEP) focused on the evolution of mating traits in harvested fish populations. This work is being carried out as part of the European Research Training Network on Fisheries-induced Adaptive Changes in Exploited Stocks (FishACE).             

PhD in Biology (2008) from the University of Lausanne, Switzerland 

Funding Source: European Commission


Rebecca Whitlock (EEP) worked on the EU FishACE project to develop and apply eco-genetic modeling approaches that account for anthropogenic evolution of sturgeon stocks in the Caspian Sea.       

PhD in Fisheries Stock Assessment (2001) from Imperial College, London

Funding Source: European Commission
