Andreas Schäfer joined the PEEC in September 2010, while on sabbatical from the University of Cambridge, UK. At Cambridge, he is director of the Martin Center for Architectural and Urban Studies and Co-Director of the Institute for Aviation and the Environment. Dr. Schäfer holds a MSc in Aero-and Astronautical Engineering and a PhD in Energy Economics, both from the University of Stuttgart, Germany. Prior to his tenure in Cambridge, he spent five years at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Laxenburg, Austria and seven years at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His interests include transportation demand modelling, technology assessment, and introduction of technology. He is lead-author of “Transportation in a Climate-Constrained World”, MIT Press (June 2009).
