Post-doctoral researchers

Dr. Ancuta Isbasoiu is currently attending a Post-Doctoral Program at IFP Energies nouvelles, in the Economics and Environmental Evaluation Department. During the Post-Doctoral program within the Chair «Carbon Management and Negative CO2 emissions technologies towards a low carbon future» (CarMa), Ancuta will work on the “State of the art on the GHGs negative emissions and their treatment on carbon markets”. She will analyze the different technologies associated with negative net emissions (NETs), their associated production costs and how negative GHG emissions are preparing to be defined, measured and reported on the different carbon markets.

Dr. Andrei Carlos Briones Hidrovo's post-doctoral position in the CarMa chair will focus on environmental assessment of Negative Emissions Technologies (NETs), such as BECCS, DACCS, afforestation and carbon integration in soils... A special attention will be paid to the integration temporal dynamics in the assessment of climate change. Dynamic Life Cycle Impact Assessment considers the timing of an emission occurrence by means of temporal differentiated emission profiles. In this work, the candidate is expected to use such dynamic modeling, and to question implicit assumptions related to it, like the choice of the time horizons or the timing of the sequestration. At last the assessments are expected to go beyond the analysis of individual chains, and to be extend to large scale deployment. Therefore  direct and indirect effect such as land use change will be analyzed, depending on the type of technologies and on the scale of expansion.

PhD Student 

Emma Jagu has joined the Economics department of IFP School in October 2019 to start her PhD work on the deployment of BECCS (Bio-Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage). 
She formely gratuated from CentraleSupélec, ESCP Europe and Université Paris-Saclay with a triple Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Management, and Energy Economics. During her student time, she participated in COP22 and COP23 as a representative of the REFEDD (Réseau Français des Etudiants pour le Développement Durable).
