Senior Research Scholar Integrated Biosphere Futures Research Group - Biodiversity and Natural Resources Program
Nicklas Forsell joined the Ecosystems Services and Management (ESM) Program in 2012 as a postdoctoral research scholar on a scholarship given by IIASA. His current research interests include the use of optimization models to analyze the links between forest, agricultural, and energy planning. By mean of enhancing and linking large-scale assessment models, his research focus on developing integrated assessments of national and global policies.
Dr Forsell obtained his MSc degree in mathematics from Mid Sweden University and his PhD in economics from the Swedish University of Agricultural Science (SLU) in collaboration with the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA). Within his PhD thesis, he considered long-term forest management under risk and uncertainty. By means of mathematical programming models, he analyzed the implications of considering stochastic damage events and spatial dependencies between forest stands when optimizing management policies of large scale forest estates. Prior to joining IIASA, Dr. Forsell worked at MINES ParisTech, France, where he focused on long-term energy system analysis and particularly focused on the integration of bioenergy production into national and global energy system models.
