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.
Aline Soterroni joined IIASA’s Ecosystems Services and Management (ESM) Program as a Research Scholar in June 2016. Dr. Soterroni holds a master’s and PhD degree in Applied Computing from the Brazilian National Institute for Space Research (INPE). Her background is in applied mathematics and computing with a special focus on optimization techniques for global optimization. Since 2012, she has contributed to the development of the regional version of the GLOBIOM-Brazil model in the framework of the REDD-PAC project
that has been jointly carried out between IIASA and INPE. She has worked on the harmonization of land use change data in the model, on the adaptation of model variables in order to capture Brazil’s specificities, and on designing future scenarios of land use policy for Brazil, especially the new Brazil’s Forest Code. In the ESM group, Dr. Soterroni will contribute to further developing of GLOBIOM-Brazil and other regional studies.
