Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Dr. Huppmann was an author of the 2018 IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C (SR15). His responsibility for the SR15 was the compilation of a scenario ensemble of quantitative scenarios (Chapter 2) and the assessment of the interaction across different Sustainable Development Goals (SDG, Chapter 5).
In parallel to his contribution to the IPCC, Dr. Huppmann was the lead developer of the energy system and integrated assessment framework MESSAGEix, an open-source platform for integrated and cross-cutting modeling. This system underpins the MESSAGEix-GLOBIOM Integrated Assessment Model, which is used as the core modeling tool at the Energy Program to explore national and global transformation strategies in the context of climate change and their linkages to a range of sustainable development objectives.
Currently, Dr. Huppmann is the "Team Leader Modeling Platform Development". In this role, he coordinates a team of three programmers/developers in the Energy Program to extend the features of the ixmp Scenario Explorer infrastructure. This system is used, among other ongoing and past activities, in the projects JPI Climate SENSES and Horizon 2020 Open ENTRANCE.
Before joining the IIASA Energy Program in October 2015, Dr. Huppmann was awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship at The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, and worked in the Civil Engineering Department. During this time, he was also affiliated as a Visiting Fellow at the think-tank Resources for the Future (RFF), Washington D.C. Before his research sojourn in the US, he worked at the Department of Energy-Transportation-Environment at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin), Germany.
Dr. Huppmann graduated with a doctorate in economics from Technical University Berlin after successfully completing the structured PhD program at DIW Berlin, defending his dissertation summa cum laude in June 2014. He also studied Mathematics at the Vienna University of Technology, where he earned an MSc degree in 2010.
