Vaibhav Chaturvedi is a Research Fellow at CEEW since September 2013. Prior to CEEW, Vaibhav worked as a Post Doctoral Research Associate at the Joint Global Change Research Institute (JGCRI), a collaboration between the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, USA and the University of Maryland, College Park, USA. He holds a PhD in Economics from the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad, and Masters in Forest Management from the Indian Institute of Forest Management Bhopal. His research is focused on Indian and global energy and climate change mitigation policy issues- Hydrofluorocarbon emission scenarios and mitigation policy, carbon dioxide emission stabilization pathways, low carbon and sustainable energy policies, nuclear energy scenarios for India, urban energy modelling, modeling energy demand sectors, and water-energy nexus within the integrated assessment modeling framework of the Global Change Assessment Model (GCAM). Vaibhav's recent work includes analyzing climate policy-agriculture water interactions, electricity rail based transportation energy scenarios, model evaluation, investment implications for the global electricity sector, and modeling the building sector energy demand scenarios for India. Vaibhav has been actively involved in global model comparison exercises like Asian Modeling Exercise (AME) and Energy Modeling Forum (EMF). At CEEW, Vaibhav intends to focus his research on India within the domain of energy and climate policy, mid-range and long-range energy scenarios and energy-water inter relationship. He has been actively publishing in leading international energy and climate policy journals.
