Jung Hee Hyun is a research scholar in the Systemic Risk and Resilience Research Group of the IIASA Advancing Systems Analysis Program. Her research focuses on understanding and measuring community-level resilience-building dynamics within the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance (ZFRA) Project. She also co-leads the Tools for Raising and Understanding Trust in Systems Science (TRUST) Project, an IIASA strategic initiative exploring linkages between participation-driven science and the perceptions of science. Her research interests include locally led adaptation, participatory science, and decision support methods for integrating climate change and other complex, uncertain future impacts into planning. She was formerly a Korea Research Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in the Integrated Assessment and Climate Change Research Group of 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, where 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.

Hyun previously studied climate finance, specifically the cost 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 at Columbia University in the US.
