IIASA Alumnus Evolution and Ecology
Celian Colon is an Associate Research Scholar with the IIASA Advanced System Analysis (ASA) program. His research focuses on the modeling of systemic risks, resilience and tipping points in ecological and economical systems, using system dynamics, agent-based modeling, and complex networks.
Dr. Colon completed his PhD in Applied Mathematics with Prof. Michael Ghil at Ecole Normale Supérieure Paris (2016), for a thesis entitled Modeling Economic Resilience. He holds an MSc in Environmental Technology and Policy from Imperial College London (2011), and graduated from the Ecole Polytechnique Paris, a multidisciplinary engineering school, in 2010. Dr. Colon participated in the IIASA Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) in 2015, with the Ecology and Evolution program and the Advanced System Analysis programs. He is associated with the World Bank and is chief data advisor for Lemon Tri, a startup company in the recycling business.
