Lara is a scientist at EIEE. She holds PhD in engineering sciences from the University of Luxembourg (2013) and a Master in Environmental Engineering from the New University of Lisbon (2008).
During her doctoral studies she has developed a reduced air quality model for an integrated assessment model for air pollution policy.
In the context of her PhD studies, she has worked at the Laboratory of Atmospheric Physics of the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, as a guest student. She developed an air quality impact module for the WITCH integrated assessment model.
She is particularly interested climate change, integrated assessment approaches, environmental statistics, energy policy, environmental economics, and air pollution and its connections with meteorology and climate.
