Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Jessica Callen is a Professional staff in the Energy Program working on the CD-LINKS project. She is a PhD student at Leibniz UniversitÃ¤t Hannover and graduated with an MSc in Nuclear Science and Technology from Manchester University. She also has a BSc in Politics and International Relations. Her research focuses on nuclear energy, including the health effects of ionizing radiation and the characteristics of severe nuclear emergencies. She has published papers on the Fukushima Daichii nuclear power plant accident and has used various different models for assessing atmospheric dispersion of radioactive material and dose calculations.
Before joining IIASA she worked at the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) supporting scientific research and the preparation of the IAEA Report on the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident. She has contributed to several technical IAEA publications and was a lecturer at numerous workshops and trainings held for IAEA Member States.
