Biography

Shinichiro Fujimori is a visiting research scholar in the Energy, Climate, and Environment (ECE) Program at IIASA and an associate professor at Kyoto University, Department of Environmental Engineering. He is also a visiting researcher at NIES. Dr. Fujimori's main fields of scientific interest include integrated assessment modeling in climate change mitigation as well as its impact and adaptation. Furthermore, broader sense of global social environmental issues and their assessments such as food security, biodiversity and so on are also included. His research attempts to inform national and global environmental policy on matters related to environmental change. Dr. Fujimori is involved in development of AIM (Asian-Pacific Integrated Model) and the future emissions, energy, economy and land-use scenarios are widely used by the climate research community. He is listed as highly cited researchers in 2019 and 2020 by Clarivate for top 1% researchers in the research field and the top of Japanese researchers in Reuter's Hot list of most influential climate scientists. Dr. Fujimori received his doctorate in Urban and Environmental Engineering from the Kyoto University (Japan), graduate school of Engineering in 2009, following the completion of an MSc and BSc in the same institution.
