Oleksandr Galychyn is a Postdoc Researcher at EPFL, Lausanne. His work involves the development of a downscaling procedure for EUCalc (Trade-offs and Pathways towards Sustainable and Low-carbon European Societies). The work involves the preparation of reports for the implementation of the procedure in EUCalc (KNIME) to develop SwissCalc, ParisCalc and LausanneCalc and inform decision-makers and the general public based on different transition scenarios.

Research interests

Oleksandr's research interests include input-output analysis, energy input-output analysis, hybrid-unit energy, and emergy input-output models, emergy accounting, urban metabolism, and socio-ecological systems. His aim is to open a 'black box' advocated by the traditional 'urban metabolism' perspective that accounts for the input of material and energy resources and the output of final products (i.e., generated GDP and supported population) and wastes to explore energy and monetary flows exchanged between industrial sectors and environment using the network model.
Currently, he is working on downscaling the levers already in EUCalc like biophysical calorie demand per person, daily calories of food wasted and the total calorie demand by population, population density, the residential and non-residential area per building type, district heating share, beneficial energy consumption (energy need) by building and appliance type, urban protected area, transport demand per capita and transport mode, occupancy and utilization rate of vehicles, a lifetime of cars and appliances, the efficiency of heating and cooling systems, vehicles, and home appliances. Furthermore, I develop approaches for downscaling emission intensities per fuel type and technology, GHG emissions per technology and fuel type associated with transportation. Finally, my duties include the identification of features irrelevant to the city scale in EUCalc and the proposition of new features relevant to any Calc.
