Pablo Salas is an Economist and Electrical Engineer by training, with a PhD in Land Economy from the University of Cambridge. Pablo’s research examines the interactions among energy, environmental and economic systems as these can be used to improve global strategies for climate change risk reduction and sustainable economic development. As part of his current research, he is analysing global scenarios of future technology and energy use, using a novel modelling framework of technology substitution dynamics, based on natural selection, competition and learning.
In addition to his research, Pablo is leading the development of various outreach activities at C-EENRG, actively connecting academics with policy makers and innovators.
