Associate Professor Edward J. Balistreri
Associate Professor Edward J. Balistreri was recently reappointed to a three year term as an Affiliate Scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). This appointment reflects the significant contributions Professor Balistreri has made in his collaborations with scientists in NCAR's Climate and Global Dynamics Division (CGD). As a part of the appointment Professor Balistreri devotes a number of weeks over the summer term to work with NCAR's Integrated Assessment Modeling Group.Integrated Assessment Models consider the interactions between physical climate systems and socioeconomic systems. In July of 2015 Professor Balistreri will be helping the Integrated Assessment Modeling Group develop methods for calibrating a 100 year horizon economic model of global markets. The goal is to accommodate, in a theoretically consistent economic framework, the range of different technological, socioeconomic, and policy futures considered by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
