Marina Andrijevic joined IIASA as a research scholar in 2021 as part of the IIASA Energy, Climate, and Environment (ECE) Program, where she works on scenarios of socioeconomic development and their further integration in integrated assessment frameworks. Her recent research focused on expanding the Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs) to account for the capacity of societies to adapt to climate change, particularly in terms of indicators of governance and gender equality.

She participated in the virtual IIASA Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) in the summer of 2020, during which she worked on representing the cooling gap in the SSPs. Her work in this regard has since been published in Environmental Research Letters. She also worked at Climate Analytics in Berlin, Germany, where she supported the economics core of the team in research related to climate change damages and adaptation.

Andrijevic successfully defended her thesis titled 'Pathways of adaptive capacity for climate impact research' and obtained her PhD in August 2021 at the Humboldt University in Berlin as part of the junior research group EmBARK, which focused on climate change adaptation and Loss and Damage. She also holds an MSc degree in Socio-Ecological Economics and Policy from Vienna University for Economics and Business, Austria and a BA in Financial Management from the University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
