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.
Chris Heyes has worked at IIASA within the Air Quality and Greenhouse Gases (AIR) Program, and its forerunners, since 1993. His original focus was the development of a simplified ozone formation module for the RAINS/GAINS integrated assessment model. Subsequently, he has been involved in various elements of the further enhancement of the GAINS model and its application to air quality policy questions, mostly in the areas of atmospheric dispersion and environmental impacts. He has made significant contributions to the extension of the RAINS/GAINS model to include particulate matter and the development of online versions of the model. More recent activities include the implementation of radiative forcing impacts from relatively short-lived species to extend the model’s capability to assess interactions between air quality and climate policies, and the generation of global emission fields.
Mr. Heyes studied chemistry at Oxford University, UK, where he received his BA degree in 1976. Subsequently, he carried out research on aspects of the atmospheric chemistry of chlorofluorocarbons relevant to the depletion of stratospheric ozone. Before joining IIASA, Mr. Heyes worked at the former Warren Spring Laboratory, Stevenage, UK, gaining experience in a wide range of air pollution problems, ranging from odor abatement to acid deposition and air quality modeling.
