Jessica Jewell is a Research Scholar in the Energy Program where she works on energy security, nuclear energy and the political economy of energy transitions. She is particularly interested in understanding the political implications of and institutional preconditions for sustainable energy transitions. At IIASA, her research focuses on incorporating insights on the institutional constraints and drivers of energy policies into energy modeling. She has published on energy security under decarbonization scenarios, nuclear energy prospects and global energy governance in journals such as Energy Policy, Climatic Change and Nature Climate Change as well as popular-press pieces on the politics of energy in the Economist and other outlets.
Dr. Jewell was a contributing author in the IPCC WGIII fifth assessment report, a lead author in the Global Energy Assessment and a lead author of a report by the UN Secretary General's Task Force on the SE4All renewables and efficiency targets. She also serves on the editorial board of Energy Research and Social Science. Before joining IIASA, she worked at the IEA on developing a model of short-term energy security (MOSES). She holds a PhD from Central European University where she won a University-wide best dissertation award and an MSc in Environmental Sciences, Policy and Management (MESPOM) from a joint program between Central European University, University of Manchester and Lund University. Her first degree was from Brown University in Geology.
