IIASA Alumnus Ecosystems Services and Management
Olga Turkovska joined IIASA's Ecosystem Services and Management Program (ESM) as a Research Assistant in September 2014. She is mainly working on ESM's Global Forest Model (G4M) and the Global Biosphere Optimization Model (GLOBIOM) in order to improve forest management modeling within recursive limitations.
Ms. Turkovska obtained her Specialist Degree in International Information from Lviv Polytechnic University. She continued as a PhD student and is now finalizing her research in Information Technologies focusing on development of a country specific forest model for Ukraine under the G4M framework. A part of her PhD work was to improve a forest management simulation in the model and developing socio-economic scenarios considering local demand on bioenergy.
Ms. Turkovska also participated in IIASA's Young Scientists Summer Program in 2014, and visited IIASA as a Guest Research Assistant under a grant of the Ukrainian Government in 2013, and as an Ernst Mach fellow in 2014.
