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.
Guy Abel joined IIASA’s World Population (POP) Program as a Research Scholar in November 2011 to develop estimates of global migration flow tables and future global migration scenarios.
Previously, Dr. Abel was a Post-doctoral Research Fellow in the ESRC Research Centre for Population Change and Southampton Statistical Sciences Research Institute, both based at the University of Southampton, UK. In 2009, he completed his PhD in the Division of Social Statistics at the University of Southampton. His research focuses on the application of statistical methods, including missing data techniques and Bayesian approaches to estimate migration and forecast populations.
He is also an associated researcher at the ESRC Research Centre for Population Change in Southampton, UK.
