Rose Murphy

Postdoctoral researcher in the PICS / Built Environment Project

Rose received her master’s and doctoral degrees from the School of Resource and Environmental Management at Simon Fraser University. After completing her master’s degree, she worked for several years as a consultant and university researcher on a variety of projects, many of which used the CIMS energy-economy model to analyze policies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Her doctoral research involved a number of projects on themes such as the risks associated with geological carbon storage, energy efficiency opportunities in the US economy, and the cost of forest carbon sequestration. Her work as a post-doc with the PICS Built Environment project aims to combine advancements in energy-economy modeling at the national/regional scale with the spatial elements necessary to understand energy use within the built environment of cities.
