Hi! My name is Florian, I’m a creative researcher with interest in Economics, Environment, Energy, Ethics, Evolution, Etc.
Here you can find information on my research and a few random comments in what I’d theoretically hope to once make into a more regular blog on — hmm — too wast a range of topics.
I’m Head of Economics and Quantitative Methods at Aurora Energy Research in Oxford, associate fellow of the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) at University of Oxford, associate of the Swiss Institute for International Economics and Applied Economic Research (SIAW) at University of St. Gallen, and affiliate of the CESifo Research Network.
I love all sorts of economics, especially if it’s about structuring the thinking on questions of public or environmental policy, or of ethical personal behavior: Beyond energy & climate economics and public policy, areas of interest include applied ethics – bioethics and animal welfare –, human evolution, the economics of individual environmental and ethical actions. Prior to my current position, I have been carrying out my doctoral studies in the field of environmental and resource economics, working as a research assistant to the chair for Economic Policy of the SIAW at University of St. Gallen, and have undertaken a research at the Oxford Centre for the Analysis of Resource Rich Economics (OxCarre) at University of Oxford. Before discovering economics, I graduated with a Master in Environmental Sciences and Engineering at ETH Lausanne, EPFL.
