Dr. Diego Iribarren
Diego Iribarren joined the Systems Analysis Unit of the IMDEA Energy Institute in 2010 as a postdoctoral researcher and became a senior assistant researcher in 2014. He received his Ph.D. (2010) and B.Sc. (2005) degrees in Chemical and Environmental Engineering from the University of Santiago de Compostela, holding an FPU fellowship from the Spanish Ministry of Education. His current research activity focuses on the advanced analysis of energy systems under technical, economic, environmental and social perspectives. Among his research lines, the development and application of novel methods combining data envelopment analysis (DEA) and life-cycle approaches (life cycle sustainability assessment, assessment of carbon footprint, emergy analysis, etc.) is highlighted. This was the key topic of his research stay at the CRP Henri Tudor in Luxembourg in 2013. He has been involved in 20 research projects and contracts at both national and international levels, and has published more than 35 contributions to national and international conferences, more than 30 articles in peer-reviewed international journals and more than 5 book chapters. He participates actively in the Spanish Network for Life Cycle Assessment (esLCA) and in international networks such as the European Energy Research Alliance (JP e3s) and the IEA Hydrogen Implementing Agreement (Tasks 30 and 36).
