My background is in economics and the environment. I have worked  in international financial institutions, business and academia.

        The main focus of my work is the economics of climate change, in particular carbon pricing and the economics of adaptation, but I am also interested in wider environment and development issues.

Prior to joining LSE I worked for many years at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and before that at the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the World Bank. I started my career at the Centre for Social and Economic Research on the Global Environment (CSERGE) at University College London. During 2007/08 I was Managing Director (Strategic Advice) at IDEAcarbon.

I was educated at the University of Berne (lic. rer. pol. 1989), the London School of Economics (MSc Econ 1990) and University College London (PhD Econ 1994).
