2011 Postdoc fellows

Nuno Bento

Nuno Bento investigated growth dynamics in transport linked to increasing urbanization and environmental issues. More

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

Xiaojie Chen

Xiaojie Chen used evolutionary game theory and adaptive dynamics to assess evolutionary dynamics in biological and social systems, especially the emergence and stability of cooperation in social networks. More

Tobias Eriksson

Tobias Eriksson from Sweden worked on the development of carbon balance models for boreal peatlands. More

Hiroshi Ito

Hiroshi Ito worked on the extension of adaptive dynamics theory for multidimensional trait spaces, focusing on conditions for evolutionary branching. More

Jacob Johansson

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

Christina Kaiser

Christina Kaiser focused on a soil carbon and nitrogen cycling model that is based on competitive and synergistic interactions between soil microbes belonging to different microbial functional groups in a spatially structured system. More

Ola Lindroos

Ola Lilndroos's area of research is within forest operation efficiency. 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

Eva-Maria Nordström

Eva-Maria Nordström worked on scenario analysis for the forest sector conducting global and local analysis, particularly in Scandinavia and Sweden. More

Narasimha Rao

Narasimha Rao researched the relationship between electricity access, income distribution, and greenhouse gas emissions in India, focusing on policy implementation and governance influences. More

Tatsuya Sasaki

Tatsuya Sasaki carried out research on the co-evolution of cooperation and volunteering in public goods games. 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

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
