Integrated Assessment
of Energy Systems

Research

My research deals with the quantitative assessment of environmental, energy and economic outcomes of energy transitions. Specifically, it focuses on the development of an interdisciplinary approach of Integrated Assessment of Energy Systems which bridges the following fields:
Energy analysis

Energy engineering, Energetics, Conventional energy accounting methods

Multi-scale integrated analysis

MuSIASEM, Integrated modeling, Complex systems, Societal metabolism

Energy transitions

Alternative energy systems, Behavioral changes, Sustainability assessment, Water-energy-food nexus

About me

Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain)
François Diaz Maurin

I am an engineer with expertise in large-scale infrastructure projects in the French and US nuclear industries. I left the USA in late 2010 to join the IASTE research group of the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA) at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona to work on the application of Multi-Scale Integrated Analysis of Societal and Ecosystem Metabolism (MuSIASEM) to energy systems. In October 2013 I completed my PhD on assessing the viability and desirability of nuclear energy with a newly developed protocol to compare the quality of different alternative energy sources. I have been a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (2013–2016) and at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (2016–).
