Dr Evelina Trutnevyte is a senior researcher, group leader and lecturer at ETH Zurich, Department of Environmental Systems Science, USYS Transdisciplinarity Lab. She is a member of the Swiss Competence Center for Energy Research-Supply of Electricity (SCCER-SoE), ETH Energy Science Center (ETH ESC), and an associate of the ETH Institute of Science, Technology and Policy (ETH ISTP). She is also an Honorary Senior Research Associate at University College London, Bartlett School of Environment, Energy & Resources. She is an engineer by training and has completed her PhD studies at ETH Zurich, Chair of Natural and Social Science Interface.
Evelina is an energy systems analyst and modeler, specializing in socio-technical approaches and energy decision making under deep uncertainty and at science-society interface. She holds the highly competitive Swiss National Science Foundation Ambizione Energy grant for analysis of cross-technology and spatial trade-offs in human health, safety, built and natural environment impacts of the Swiss electricity generation portfolio (RIGOROuS project).
To date she has over 20 peer-reviewed journal publications, over 30 invitations for keynote speeches, guest presentations, or other visible roles, and she has co-edited a Thematic Issue in Environmental Modelling & Software (IF=4.5) on quantitative scenario techniques. She acts as a reviewer for multiple journals, such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States (PNAS), Nature Energy, Applied Energy, or Environmental Science & Technology, as well as for several funding mechanisms, including European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grants and Joint Programming Initiative Climate programme. She also periodically engages in policy-relevant discussions with Swiss Federal Office of Energy, UK Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (former UK Department of Energy and Climate Change), and International Energy Agency.
