More recently, he has complemented this with city level work on biodiversity and developing tools to plan for global/local co-benefits across urban sectors (transport, waste and energy). He teaches an elective course on geospatial techniques for environmental governance within the IAS MSc. programme.
Dr.Doll was born and educated in the UK. He has previously held positions at Columbia University (CIESIN) in New York and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Austria as well as the JSPS Fellowship with UNU-IAS and the University of Tokyo.
