PhD Study: Emissions from Automated Vehicles
Ella Rebalski joined Mistra Carbon Exit as a PhD student in February 2018, where she studies how automated vehicles (AVs) will affect carbon dioxide emissions in Sweden. Ella, originally from Vancouver, Canada, completed a master’s degree in environmental management and policy at Lund University before moving to Gothenburg. Prior to joining Mistra Carbon Exit, she was a researcher at RISE, working with electromobility, AV regulation, and mobility as a service.
As a transportation researcher, Ella was drawn to the project out of excitement for AVs, coupled with an awareness that they will soon transform the way we travel and move in society. AV development will be influenced by many different actors, and Mistra Carbon Exit has gathered a diverse group that is willing to discuss different scenarios for new system developments, and work together to help keep emissions as low as possible.
