Inês Azevedo Expert elicitation consultant

Ines Azevedo is an Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University. Her research interests lie at the intersection of environmental, technical, and economic issues, such as how to address the challenge of climate change and move towards a more sustainable energy system. She tackles complex problems in which traditional engineering plays an important role but cannot provide a complete answer. In particular, she looks 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 process followed by different agents in the economy. For Emerging Futures, she applies her extensive experience in expert elicitation to help provide quantitative information on energy and space technologies.
