Molina Bacca

Ph.D. Student in the Landuse modeling group

Edna Molina Bacca obtained her BSc. chemical engineering degree from the National University of Colombia (Bogota, Colombia), and her MSc. degree from the University of Calgary (Calgary, Canada). She joined the landuse modeling team (RD3) in September of 2019 as a Ph.D. student. Her thesis is focused on the integrated assessment of the coherence of current climate & land use policy mixes at different spatial scales in an interconnected world. The main tool she is using to develop her project is the MAgPIE modeling framework.
