Jung Hee Hyun is a Korea Research Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow with the
Integrated Assessment and Climate Change Research Group in the IIASA Energy, Climate, and Environment Program. She received her PhD in Engineering in the Interdisciplinary Program in Landscape Architecture and Integrated Major in Smart City Global Convergence from Seoul National University, South Korea.

Her dissertation work focused on exploratory modeling of adaptation pathways to support decision making for climate adaptation planning, applying heuristic optimization methods to efficiently assess long-term adaptation options according to future climate impacts and decision-maker preferences.

She is currently working on subjects related to the role of standardized guidance in adaptation planning as well as adaptation policy assumptions in deriving climate impacts within Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs), and feedback loops of adaptation policy targets for projecting future emissions.

Hyun previously studied climate finance, specifically the cost of "green" of green bonds, as part of her Master's degree in Global Economy and Strategy from Yonsei University in South Korea. She also holds a Bachelor's degree in Urban Studies (Environmental Science) from Barnard College, Columbia University in the US.
