Prof. Dr. Sabine Fuss

Dr. Sabine Fuss leads the working group Sustainable Resource Management and Global Change. Her current research interests are: 

  • Natural resource management, energy and agricultural economics (bioenergy, land use implications)
  • Decision-making under uncertainty, with a focus on portfolio selection, real options theory, stochastic optimization and robustness
  • Integrated assessment with a focus on climate change mitigation and adaptation (including the role of international trade, negative emission options and technologies)
  • Reconciling top-down and bottom-up assessments, science-policy nexus
  • Mechanisms for carbon management, climate-compatible development, architecture of climate agreements

Sabine Fuss studied international economics, receiving an MSc from the University of Maastricht, where she also completed a PhD on sustainable development in the energy sector. Before coming to MCC, Sabine Fuss led a group working on the development of economic methods with emphasis on uncertainty and risk in the Ecosystems Services and Management Program of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). In that capacity, she was responsible for, among other functions, international and national projects in the area of climate change mitigation and adaptation, especially in the case of land use.
