PhD Research project

This project develops a suite of applicable methods including input-output and social network analysis that are appropriate to identify critical notes and help to analyse determinants of change and transition in structural and functional connectivity of networks. The project applies selected methods to environmental research problems of post-carbon energy transitions, the water-energy-food nexus, or floodplains as social-ecological systems. A core objective is to derive methodological contributions that help to describe and analyse input-output data in connectivity studies.

The project includes research collaboration with IIASA, MODUL University Vienna, European University Cyprus, and, depending on the case selection, research stays at the Environment Agency UK and BOKU, the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna.
