Dr.ir. Sibel Eker is an Assistant Professor of System Dynamics at Radboud University, Nijmegen School of Management and a Senior Research Scholar at International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Austria. Her interdisciplinary research profile combines systems analysis and engineering, decision sciences and social sciences, and her work brings systems thinking and uncertainty focus to climate change and sustainability problems with model-based approaches.

Sibel is a selected member of Global Young Academy, where she is co-leading the Scientific Excellence Working Group; a Lead Author in UNEP’s Global Environment Outlook (GEO-7); and associate editor of Humanities and Social Sciences Communications and Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change (Springer Nature).

Prior to joining RU, Dr. Eker held research positions at Climate Interactive, IIASA, University College London and Delft University of Technology. Complementing her academic experience, she has worked with several stakeholders and policy actors such as UK DBEIS, World Bank, EIT-Climate KIC, governmental and private organizations, using model-based and analytical techniques for decision analysis and stakeholder engagement.

Her current research interests center around the drivers and implications of demand-side climate change mitigation, sustainable diets, and co-production of mitigation and sustainability scenarios through simple integrated assessment models. She is leading several internationally funded research projects on the role of social systems in climate change mitigation.
