I work on the interface of environmental economics, climate science and innovation studies. Research in recent years focuses on the design of effective and politically-feasible climate policy that accounts for undesirable systemic impacts, such as energy rebound and international carbon leakage. This involves the application of methods and insights of behavioural and evolutionary economics, operationalized through agent-based modelling. Past work covered integrated ecological-economic modelling, contributions to the growth-versus-environment debate, environmental policies applied to urban-transport issues, biodiversity valuation and policy, modelling of recycling in material-product chains, and international dimensions of environmental policy.
