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.
Adriano Vinca is a research assistant with the Energy Program (ENE) at IIASA, where he contributes to the development of the global MESSAGEix IAM and its modeling platform. He is also a PhD candidate at the University of Victoria, Canada. He is currently involved in the Integrated Solutions for Water, Energy, and Land (ISWEL) project, developing an integrated model to assess water-energy-land nexus challenges at the river basin scale level. The first application of the model focuses on the Indus river basin.
Mr. Vinca holds an MSc degree (2017) and a BSc degree (2014) in Energy Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano. He was a visiting scholar and later a research assistant at Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei, where he contributed to the improvement of the WITCH integrated assessment model. Part of his work focused on exploring the potential of carbon capture and storage technologies in mitigation scenarios and the associated risk of CO2 leakage, and implementing a dedicated module within the WITCH model.
