Doctoral Researcher Marianna Rottoli

Marianna Rottoli is a doctoral researcher at PIK in the working group of Energy Systems as part of which she is developing and extending the capabilities of the transport model EDGE-T, a satellite model of the Integrated Assessment Model REMIND.

She graduated with a Bachelor and Masters in Energy Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano. Her master thesis explored Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in the Integrated Assessment Model WITCH.
