2019 Postdoc fellows


Alessandra Rocha Kortz

Alessandra Kortz researches the role of non-native species leading to biodiversity change. More

Raquel Guimaraes

In her research at IIASA, Raquel Guimaraes aims to contribute to the existing literature and to policy-making by modelling and predicting individual and collective preparation, mitigation and response behaviours towards floods. She conducts a case study for Brazil, Philippines and Thailand, examining gender differentials in flood-preparedness. More

Andreas Nascimento

Andreas Nascimento joined the Advanced Systems Analysis program and investigates problems involving stochastic optimisation on different fronts. More

Bushra Khalid

Bushra Khalid works on developing a dynamic disease predictive model with the aim to highlight the disease hotspots and their causing factors to inform end users and policy makers to take mitigation measures in the vulnerable regions. More

Ayelet Davidovitch

Ayelet Davidovitch investigates the Israeli Energy Sector Trade-offs and Synergies by 2030.  More

Paul Kishimoto

Paul Natsuo Kishimoto is a Postdoctoral Research Scholar in the Energy (ENE) and Transitions to New Technologies (TNT) programs, with a research focus on transportation demand growth in emerging economies; consequent energy demand and environmental impacts; and technology and policy for sustainable mobility. More

Nandita Saikia

Nandita Saikia research focuses on the impact of air quality on health and mortality with a special emphasis on spatial variation.  More

Chai Molina

Chai Molina is studying how to build better international environmental agreements using game theory. More

Florian Hofhansl

Florian Hofhansl is exploring the mechanisms controlling the functioning of tropical forest ecosystems. More

Franziska Gaupp

Franziska Gaupp uses IIASA crop and land-use models, as well as different statistical approaches to quantify the risks of simultaneous breadbasket failures. More

Sibel Eker

Sibel Eker uses modeling and simulation to address complex policy problems. Her research at IIASA focuses on the validation of systems models used for exploring scenarios to deal with deep uncertainties.  More

Isela-Elizabeth Téllez-León

Isela-Elizabeth Téllez-León works on network-based modeling and big data as part of the crosscutting Systemic Risk and Network Dynamics project at IIASA. More

Camila Callegari

Camila Callegari is PhD at Energy Planning Program at COPPE/UFRJ. She is industrial engineer and holds a master degree in Energy Planning. More

Valeria Javalera Rincon

Valeria Javalera-Rincon is working on a project related to the optimal distribution of resources in large-scale systems. More

Katya Pérez-Guzman

Katya Pérez-Guzman’s research aims to study a possible carbon curse by developing a network centrality measure of extractivism of natural resources, based on input output economic models More

Julian Hunt

Julian Hunt researches the implementation of seasonal-pumped-storage plants to improve energy and water management. More

Chulwook Park

Chulwook Park is researching the invariant properties of biological patterns in an ecological context through Systems Dynamics. More

Mateusz Iskrzyński 

Mateusz Iskrzyński studies the structure of networks in complex systems ranging from ecological food webs to trade and migration networks. He wants to understand how their structure influences and is changed by transitions in these systems.  More

Alison Heslin

Alison Heslin of the World Population and Risk and Resilience programs focuses her research on globalization, food security, and collective action, looking specifically at the relationship between resource scarcity and conflict. More
