Sibel Eker is a senior researcher at Climate Interactive. Her work brings systems thinking and uncertainty focus to policy and decision-making problems with model-based approaches and analytics. Sibel has an interdisciplinary research profile that combines systems analysis and engineering, decision sciences and social sciences. Her experience synthesizes various modeling tools, primarily system dynamics, and various problem areas such as natural resources, energy, housing, climate change and decarbonization. Building upon her previous work with several international and national decision-making bodies and stakeholders, Sibel works towards making quantitative models more useful especially in participatory settings.
Sibel holds a PhD in policy analysis and a MSc degree in systems engineering and management from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Prior to joining Climate Interactive, she worked at University College London, Delft University of Technology, and International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Austria, where she still works part-time.
