Dr. G. (Giacomo) Marangoni



Giacomo Marangoni joined the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management as an assistant professor in 2022. Before then, he worked in the Department of Management Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Milan (Italy). There he completed his PhD in 2017, developing models for supporting sustainable energy investment decisions under uncertainty, followed by a post-doc at Penn State University, USA, on climate change risk management.

His research revolves around Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) and how these can inform effective climate policies. He has published on topics like multi-objective optimization and uncertainty analysis of mitigation strategies, feasibility of clean energy transition, low-carbon scenarios, energy conservation, technological learning, and climate inequality. His teaching has focused on energy-economic modelling, renewables, and big data analysis for solving societal challenges.

Giacomo Marangoni is currently involved in the Governance theme of TU Delft Climate Action Programme (CAP). In his work at TPM and within CAP, he plans to explore further how to design robust model-based climate policies, properly accounting for conflicting environmental and economic objectives, ethical concerns and deep uncertainties.
