Read how IIASA works with research partners across the globe to deliver world-class research.
Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Elisabeth Wetterlund joined the Ecosystems Services and Management Program (ESM) at IIASA as a Guest Research Scholar in January 2017. She is contributing to the development of the BeWhere model, a techno-economic model which optimizes the geographical location of bio-energy production plants. She also holds a position as Associate Senior Lecturer in Energy Engineering at Luleå University of Technology, Sweden, where she mainly works with research related to modeling and analysis of energy systems, with particular focus on forest biomass, biorefineries, biofuels for transportation, and integration with industries or local or regional energy systems.
Dr. Wetterlund received her PhD in Energy Systems in 2012, from Linköping University, Sweden. She first came to the Forestry Program at IIASA as a participant of the 2010 Young Scientists Summer Program, returning one year later to ESM, as the recipient of the 2010 Mikhalevich Award.
