PostDoc // Postdoctoral Researcher on integrated water-food-energy systems modelling at UNESCO IHE Delft Institute for Water Education

This work is directly related to the ongoing EC Horizon2020 project SIM4NEXUS. SIM4NEXUS is a 4-year project (June 2016-June 2020) that aims to robustly and quantitatively explore the water-energy-food-land use-climate nexus at a range of scales from regional to global, and to incorporate policy directions into this assessment, greatly extending the current state-of-the-art in nexus research and science. One key element of the project is to design and develop system dynamics models for 12...

Funded PhD Scholarship // Water-Energy Nexus at the NUI Galway/Ireland

The links between energy usage and water are not clearly understood or recognised and thus water consumption is not considered as being intertwined with energy/electricity usage. Additionally, the water footprint of energy/electricity production is not usually considered, even though water is a scarce resource in many places. This project will firstly identify the water related electricity use at different spatial scales to define the “electricity footprint” of water use. On the other side,...
