Alessio Mastrucci is a research scholar jointly associated with the Sustainable Service Systems and Transformative Institutional and Social Solutions research groups of the IIASA Energy, Climate, and Environment (ECE) Program. His research focuses on modeling the energy demand of buildings at regional and global scale, assessing access to decent housing and thermal comfort in the global South, and developing scenarios for the building sector toward achieving climate and sustainable development goals. His research interests include energy and technology scenarios, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and linkages between energy and human development. His methods include building energy demand modeling, thermal comfort analysis, life cycle assessment (LCA), and policy analysis.
He is currently working on assessing energy demand transformation scenarios for the building sector and developing energy, materials, and greenhouse gas emissions projections as part of the European projects NAVIGATE, SHAPE, and ENGAGE. He is co-lead of the 'Buildings' working group of the international EDITS (Energy demand changes induced by technological and social innovations) project.
Mastrucci holds a PhD in Buildings, Architecture and Structures and a master's degree in Building Engineering and Architecture from Universita Politecnica delle Marche, Italy. Before joining IIASA in 2016, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Universita Politecnica delle Marche and the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology, Luxembourg, and was involved in a number of national and European research projects.
