IIASA & CSH Associate Faculty
Elena Rovenskaya is the Program Director of the Advanced Systems Analysis (ASA) Program at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Laxenburg, Austria. She is also a Research Scholar at the Optimal Control Department of the Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia.
Elena graduated in 2003 from the Faculty of Physics, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia. She received her PhD in 2006 from the Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia. The title of her PhD thesis was “On solving the problem of finding the optimal compatibility parameter value for a class of equations in a normalized space.”
Elena’s scientific interests lie in the fields of theory of optimal control and economic-environmental modeling. Her current research is focusing on modeling optimal forest management, exploring systemic risks in ecological networks, modeling economic growth with environmental constraints and agent-based modeling of regional development.
