Research Interests


The multitude of severe environmental problems in the world presents a serious challenge for society – how can we facilitate the transition to socially just and ecologically sustainable development? For me, interdisciplinary economic analysis is the tool of choice for finding answers to this question.

My current focus lies on quantifying intertemporal responsibility for regime shifts in ecosystems as part of the marEEshift project. In particular, I investigate how different ecosystem states can be attributed to past actions of various agents and the implications this has for optimal governance structures.

Over the course of my studies, I have developed a strong interest in the fields of growth theory, climate change economics, and panel data analysis.
