L. Niamir MSc (Leila)

PhD Candidate / PhD Student

About Me

Leila received her MSc. degree in Information Science and Knowledge Management from University of Tehran, 2012. In 2013, she received Erasmus Mundus scholarship for a post-graduate program in Geo-informatics, ITC, University of Twente. She is currently a PhD student at the Department of Governance and Technology for Sustainability, University of Twente, in the Netherlands. From February 2014, she joined an EU FP7 project “COMPLEX” focusing on design and implementation of agent-based models for energy market in the context of low-carbon strategy. Her main scientific interests include Agent-based modeling, Economics of energy, Behavioral change, Economics of climate change, and Modeling regime shifts.
