I am an international climate policy researcher with PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (department of Climate, Air and Energy), holding a Master of Science in Climate Studies. I have been working on projects for the European Commission, supporting DG Climate Action, as well as the Horizon 2020 projects CD-LINKS and ENGAGE. I further jointly manage the COMMIT project (https://themasites.pbl.nl/commit/). This work involves providing DG Climate Action with scientific input for the climate negotiations, e.g. evaluating national climate and energy policies by quantifying their expected effect on greenhouse gas emissions until 2030 and comparing them to international emission reduction pledges (most notably NDCs). It further involves developing 2 °C-consistent scenarios starting from these policies and NDCs, using PBL’s IMAGE model. In addition, I am analysing country-level energy system and emission pathways from both global and national mitigation scenarios, including their implications for and links with other sustainable development goals. Finally, I have mapped which SDG targets and interactions can be quantified by integrated assessment models (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2589791819300179).
