Nazmiye joined the PSI Environment Group in February 2005. Prior to joining PSI, she worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Regional Economics Applications Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her main research interests include integration of environment, economy and energy models; modelling and analysis of regional energy systems and their relationship to overall economic growth and development; analysis of climate change impacts and their implications for local healthcare policy and provision. Nazmiye holds a PhD in Regional Planning from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Ph.D.: Regional Planning, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 2004.
M.Sc.: Regional Planning, Istanbul Technical University, 1997.
B.Sc.: Urban and Regional Planning, Istanbul Technical University, 1995.
