Lavinia Poruschi MSc

Ms Lavinia Poruschi is a researcher in climate change mitigation and adaptation issues, with particular focus on carbon emissions assessment and reporting for different land use types, having worked on urban areas or forests. With a background in policy research economics and spatial / GIS analysis applied in environmental science and urban planning, she is currently undertaking a PhD project to analyse local urban boundary setting in climate change GHG emissions measurement and reporting. Her focus is on South East Queensland. Perspectives from which this work draws on are the urban metabolism, ecological economics, urban sustainability and ecological modernisation.

She completed an internship with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (the IPCC), training in greenhouse gas emissions accounting with the Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories, in Hayama, Japan. She has previously worked with a number of international think-thanks and initiatives: the Global Carbon Project, the (Japanese) National Institute for Environmental Studies and the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies.
