2009 Postdoc fellows

Jason Blackstock

Jason J. Blackstock focused on evaluating the scientific, political and economic implications of climate engineering (geoengineering) concepts aimed at limiting the negative consequences of climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions. More

Mats Bodin

Mats Bodin used adaptive dynamics techniques to study the evolutionary consequences of harvesting on maturation size and other inheritable traits in fish. More

Åke Brännström

Åke Brännström investigated evolution in ecological food webs and multi-species communities. More

Christopher Doll

Christopher Doll carried out research on the production of socioeconomic datasets from night-time light satellite imagery and how they can be combined with other data to help answer fundamental questions concerning sustainable development and the human dimensions of global change. More

Terence Fell

Terence Fell carried out research focusing on the institutional mismatch between formal natural resource management policies and the informal rules in use in local community contexts. More

Jacob Johansson

Jacob Johansson developed eco-evolutionary models for explaining fundamental patterns of variation in plant community structures. More

Erling Lundevaller

Erling Lundevaller focused on methods for demographic projections, including micro-simulation where the life course of each individual is followed. This allows, inter alia, the spatial-temporal aspects of fertility and mortality to be analyzed, allowing the future composition of populations to be predicted. More

Suichi Matsumura

Shuichi Matsumura worked on spatial modeling of interactions between anglers and fish populations.  More

Rupert Mazzucco

Rupert Mazzucco worked on computational models of non-allopatric speciation. More

Johan Östergren

Johan Östergren looked into eco-genetic modeling of human-induced evolution (i.e., through dams and fisheries) in anadromous fish in general, with a particular interest in sea trout. More

Upasna Sharma

Upasna Sharma researched issues related to communication of uncertainty associated with climate forecasts and climate hazard warnings, particularly, how the target audience of these forecasts and warnings interpret, understand, and respond to uncertainty. More

Jose Siri

Jose Siri researched how urbanization patterns and urban structure affect the transmission of mosquito-borne disease, and how better understanding of the dispersal of humans, vectors, and infection in this context can lead to more effective and efficient public health policy. More

Katsumasa Tanaka

Katsumasa Tanaka joined IIASA on conclusion of his Ph.D. in Geophysics at the International Max Planck Research School in Hamburgof. More

Edmar Teixeira

Edmar Teixeira focused on the enhancement of the FAO/IIASA Agro-ecological Zones (AEZ) methodology. More

Davnah Urbach

Davnah Urbach, from Switzerland, focused on the evolution of mating traits in harvested fish populations. More

Rebecca Whitlock

Rebecca Whitlock worked on the EU FishACE project to develop and apply eco-genetic modeling approaches that account for anthropogenic evoloution of sturgeon stocks in the Caspian Sea. More
