I am a Visiting Senior Research Associate at the Department of Risk Management and Insurance at Georgia State University. I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from Umeå University. My research interest lies in the market failure of climate change and in assessing policy interventions that can enhance welfare. I have a particular interest in the role of the forest in climate mitigation and adaptation. In much of my work, I use policy-optimization models that integrate a global climate model with long-run macroeconomic analysis to analyze growth and climate change from a cost-benefit perspective.
