Soheil is a research fellow at Bocconi University in Milan and an affiliated scientist at EIEE. Prior to his fellowship he was a Marie-Curie fellow at Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) and a postdoctoral
research scientist at Carnegie Institution for Science at Stanford University. He got his PhD in Industrial Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. His primary research interests is in developing dynamic models for analyzing complex systems. In particular, he investigates the impacts of climate change on human systems and the uncertainties about the climatic parameters and socioeconomic conditions. He has developed new tools and approximation algorithms for optimal greenhouse gas emission policies in the face of climate change uncertainties. Soheil is also focused on designing integrated assessment models that include geoengineering as an alternative policy option. He is currently involved in a collaborative project to investigate climate change induced population dynamics,public health, food security, and migration.
