Katrin Kaltenegger holds a Bachelor's degree in Environmental System Sciences with a focus on Physics, and a Master's degree in Environmental System Sciences with a focus on Natural Sciences, both from the University of Graz. During the writing of her theses she discovered a passion for transdisciplinary work and modeling, which brought her to IIASA in 2018.
At IIASA, Ms. Kaltenegger is working as a research assistant with the Air Quality and Greenhouse Gases Program (AIR) in the GELUC project team, which aims at developing a model by combining a Biomass Balance Model developed by members of the Institute of Social Ecology with the GAINS model. She is also involved in the UNCNET project which aims to develop urban nitrogen budgets for two European and two Chinese cities. She is a PhD candidate at BOKU Vienna with a focus on soil surface nitrogen budgets on different scales.
