Research Profile

Eoin Ó Broin is undertaking a postdoc at CIRED under Dr Céline Guivarch on the incorporation of physical transport infrastructure (roads, railways, airports) in Integrated Assessment Modelling. This is part of the EU funded project ADVANCE (http://www.fp7-advance.eu/). Previous to this his research involved using top-down (econometric) and bottom up (simulation) modelling of energy demand in the European building stock to make scenarios for energy demand to 2050. This was carried out for his PhD at the Dept. of Energy and Environment at Chalmers in Sweden. He has an M.Sc. in Industrial Ecology from Chalmers and a B.Eng. in Electronic Engineering from the University of Limerick and has also undertaken internships at the UN ECE Committee on Housing and Land Management and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development in Geneva, Switzerland.
