  Inês Lima Azevedo is Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University. She is co-PI and the Executive Director for the Climate and Energy Decision Making Center. She has a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Environmental Engineering (2004) from the Technical University of Lisbon and a PhD in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University (2009). Dr. Azevedo’s research interests lie at the intersection of environmental, technical and economic issues, such as how to address the challenge of climate change and to move towards a more sustainable energy system. She addresses complex problems in which traditional engineering plays an important role but cannot provide a complete answer. In particular, she has been looking at how energy systems are likely to be shaped in the future, which requires comprehensive knowledge not only of the technologies that can address future energy needs but also of the decision-making processes followed by different agents in the economy. Dr. Azevedo has also been working on assessing how specific policies will shape future energy systems, especially in a carbon-constrained world.
