Read how IIASA works with research partners across the globe to deliver world-class research.
Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Guy Abel joined the IIASA World Population (POP) Program as a Research Scholar in November 2011. His research focuses on techniques for estimating migration patterns and applying statistical methods to better forecast components of population change. He is also the leader of the International Migration research group at the Asian Demographic Research Institute and Professor in the School of Sociology and Political Sciences at Shanghai University. He received China's National 1000 Expert Award for Young Professionals in 2017 and Shanghai's 1000 Foreign Expert Award in 2015.
Previously he worked at the Vienna Institute of Demography, the ESRC Centre for Population Change and S3RI at the University of Southampton.
