Biography

Mykola Gusti is a Research Scholar with the Ecosystems Services and Management Program (ESM), having joined IIASA in 2005. He is currently involved in development of the Global Forest Model (G4M) used for analyzing climate mitigation options within land use change and forest management activities.

Dr. Gusti graduated from the Lviv Franko State University in 1996, where he completed his diploma thesis on Macromodels with Chebyshev approximation in the field of radiophysics. Following his graduation, he worked as an engineer in the Department of Complex Dynamical Systems Modeling at the Research Institute of Information Infrastructure in Lviv, Ukraine. He defended his PhD dissertation on Modeling the Dynamics of the Carbon Budget of Ecosystems of the Carpathian Region in Ukraine, in 2002, and defended a habilitation thesis on Mathematical Models of Processes of Carbon Dioxide Emissions and Sinks in Forestry and Land Use Change, in 2018. From 2001 to 2002, he worked at LSCE, France where he dealt with modeling the transport of trace gases using GCM LMDZ3.3. From 2002 to 2005, he returned to the Research Institute of Information Infrastructure in Lviv, Ukraine to work on the development of geo-information technologies for greenhouse gas inventory and prognosis of the carbon budget in Ukraine.

Dr. Gusti's scientific interests are mathematical modeling and data processing applicable in environment research.
