Research interests

I am an environmental economist and political economist researching structural change linked to the transition to net-zero. I am particularly interested in how to stimulate faster and more ambitious green innovation. One focus of my work in this area is the problem of coordination failure: how does policy facilitiate the collective action and coordination needed to change the technologies of large heavy incumbent industries? I am also doing research on policies to support just transitions, in particular the importance of regional, labour and social policies to ensure that climate policies do not have unfair concentrated impacts on some communities.
