I am an environmental economist with a wide range of interests related to climate change mitigation and adaptation. One strand of my research builds on policy-optimization models that integrate climate change into long-run macroeconomic analysis to assess the welfare implications of different policy alternatives. Another strand of my research is empirical and aims to quantify the losses from extreme weather events and the extent to which policy interventions can reduce these losses.
I am currently a Visiting Researcher at the Maurice R. Greenberg School of Risk Science and the Department of Economics at Georgia State University. My experience outside academia includes working as an economist at the Swedish National Institute of Economic Research and as a consultant for the World Bank.
