Short CV

Marta Olazabal is a Research Fellow at the Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3) and Head of the Adaptation Research Group. She has a background on Environmental Engineering (Bsc 2004, MSc 2009, School of Engineering of Bilbao) and a PhD on Land Economy (University of Cambridge, 2015). Her research focuses on urban sustainability and climate change governance, in transdisciplinar systems thinking and in approaches that bridge science and policy. She has undertaken international scientific stays in Germany (IÖR, Dresden - 2005), The Netherlands (IVAM, Amsterdam - 2006), United Kingdom (University of Newcastle - 2010, University of Southampton - 2018), Canada (McGill University - 2016) and Portugal (Universidade Nova, CENSE, May 2019). In 2011, she co-founded the Urban Resilience Research Network (URNet) which now groups more than 300 members. Applying both quantitative and qualitative methods, her current interests relate to urban climate governance, climate adaptation monitoring and evaluation, knowledge co-production and methods to assess urban resilience and sustainability.
