Abstract: In this short informal session Fabian Wagner will present aspects of his recent and current work, including science-based air pollution policy support, long-term integrated assessment of climate change, and aerosol dimming of solar radiation. He will then touch upon ideas for applications of multi-layer networks, Bayesian belief networks, and the question of how to make better use of structural information in integrated assessment models. Hopefully in this discussion overlapping interests can be identified and ideas of how to link CSH and IIASA activities relating to health and mega-cities can be explored.
Fabian Wagner is a Senior Research Scholar in the Air Quality and Greenhouse Gases (AIR) Program. During the academic years 2014-16, he was the Gerhard R. Andlinger Visiting Professor for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University’s Andlinger Center and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. Before joining IIASA in 2004, Dr. Wagner was a researcher at the IPCC National Greenhouse Gas Inventories Programme located at the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) in Hayama, Japan. Prior to that, he was a postdoc with the International Energy Analysis Group at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). Dr. Wagner received both his PhD (theoretical physics) and two master’s degrees (mathematics, history and philosophy of science) from Cambridge University (UK). In 1998, Dr. Wagner won Cambridge University’s J.T. Knight’s Prize in mathematics.
