Rose Murphy

PICS Researcher

Dr. Rose Murphy is an academic researcher and freelance consultant who studies how we can achieve more sustainable energy systems. She specializes in developing and applying quantitative models to evaluate government policies for reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Rose’s doctoral research focused on themes such as the risks associated with geological carbon storage, the potential for energy efficiency to reduce emissions in the US economy, and the cost of forest carbon sequestration. Her current work as a post-doctoral fellow at Simon Fraser University aims to combine advancements in energy-economy modelling at the national/regional scale with the spatial elements necessary to understand energy use within the built environment of cities. Rose has received numerous awards for her research and has published peer reviewed articles in Energy Policy, The Energy Journal, Energy Economics, Ecological Economics, and Forest Policy and Economics, among others. She frequently serves as a supervisor for graduate students in the School of Resource and Environmental Management at Simon Fraser University, where she has also taught courses in energy systems modeling and sustainable energy policy.
