Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Shinichiro Fujimori is a visiting research scholar in Energy Program at IIASA and a researcher with NIES (National Institute for Environmental Studies, Japan), Center for Social and Environmental Systems Research, having joined the center in April 2010. Dr. Fujimori's main fields of scientific interest include integrated assessment modeling in climate change mitigation as well as its impact and adaptation. Furthermore, in a broader sense, global social environmental issues and their assessments such as food security, biodiversity etc. are also included. His research attempts to inform national and global environmental policy on matters related to environmental change.
Dr. Fujimori is involved in the development of the AIM (Asian-Pacific Integrated Model) in particular the AIM/CGE (Computable General Equilibrium) model. The AIM/CGE model is able to assess macroeconomic impacts due to various aspects of societal and environmental change economics. He is developing an integrating platform, bridging the energy system model (MESSAGE) and the economic model (AIM/CGE) at IIASA.
Dr. Fujimori received his doctorate in Urban and Environmental Engineering from the Kyoto University (Japan), Institute of Engineering in 2009, following the completion of an MSc and BSc at the same institution. Dr. Fujimori first visited IIASA during his PhD studies as a participant of the 2006 Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP).
