Prof. Ignacio Perez
Joint Research Centre, European Commission (https://ec.europa.eu/jrc/en)
Overview of quantitative work done by the lecturer in the last few years with different modelling tools to better understand the economic impacts of combating climate change. It includes the analysis of unilateral (e.g. emission targets) and multilateral policies (e.g. carbon taxation) and the promotion of climate change mitigation technologies (e.g. smart agriculture). This work has been published in scientific journals or used for policy impact assessment within the European Commission. It is mainly interdisciplinary and could not have been done without the collaboration of multiple scientists and reputed institutions around the world.
