Dr Reza Fazeli

Grand Challenge Research Fellow
B.Eng. (Mechanical), MSc.(Energy.Systems), PhD (Sustainable.Energy.Systems)

Reza is a Research Fellow at Zero-Carbon Energy for the Asia-Pacific Grand Challenge. He joined the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science in January 2020. He spent the previous 6 years as a Research Analyst and Adjunct lecturer at the University of Iceland, focusing on trajectories towards a sustainable energy systems. His main research interests are energy systems modeling, analysis of energy policies towards decarbonization and Multi-criteria decision analysis for energy planning.  He received his PhD in Sustainable Energy systems from University of Porto, MIT-Portugal program. He has an MSc in Energy Systems Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, Iran and a BSc in Mechanical Engineering from University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran.
