He has more than 20 years’ experience designing, building and using analysis models and information systems for a wide range of applications, from business intelligence and decision support systems, to public policy.
Prior to joining the SEI energy modeling team, he worked with the Climate Economics Group, which was dissolved in September 2012. There, his recent projects focused on two new models: CRED (Climate and the Regional Economics of Development), which connects climate policy and global equity concerns; and CBEI (Consumption-Based Emissions Inventory), which looks at the impact of consumer choices on climate change.
Bueno also does computer modeling for various SEI-US Climate Economics Group projects, and he co-authored Fat Tails, Exponents, and Extreme Uncertainty: Simulating Catastrophe in DICE (SEI Working Paper, 2009, with Frank Ackerman and Elizabeth A. Stanton), and The Caribbean and Climate Change: The Cost of Inaction (2008, with Cornelia Herzfeld, Elizabeth A. Stanton and Frank Ackerman), a report commissioned by the Environmental Defense Fund that he also translated into Spanish.
Prior to joining SEI, Bueno worked as a business analyst and software developer/architect in Cambridge, Mass., for 22 years. Born in Cuba and raised in Puerto Rico, Bueno is fluent in English and Spanish and is a close observer of U.S.-Cuba relations, the Caribbean and Latin America.
