Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Jarmo Kikstra is a research assistant with the Energy Program (ENE) at IIASA. His main scientific research interests include the integrated assessment of climate change and the linkages to a broader suite of sustainable development objectives.
Mr. Kikstra has finished the MSc course (2019) in Climate Change at University College London and holds a BSc degree (2018) in Technology, Liberal Arts, and Sciences from the University of Twente. His work included integrating temperature variability effects into the cost-benefit PAGE model, as well as assessing local policy ambitions from both a modeling and a policy analysis perspective.
Currently, he is involved in the Decent Living Energy project which focuses on gaining insight in the current state and future developments of poverty and its energy implications. In addition, he takes part in an effort to consistently assess the climate implications of emission scenario pathways modeled by integrated assessment models, and works on assessing the adverse side-effects and co-benefits of ambitious climate mitigation.
