Projects per year
My research interests are in two fields:
Environmental Economics: Economics of climate change; socially optimal environmental policy in the presence of stock externalities and depletable environmental resources; the relationship between economic growth and environmental quality, and the valuation of biological diversity.
Applied Econometrics: The use of cointegration techniques in time series analysis. Structural convergence between European economies. Application of non-stationary panel data to analyse growth/environment relationships. In this area, I collaborate with Professor Christophe Tavera (at the University of Rennes I, France).
In terms of knowledge exchange, I have an interest in economics appraisal and cost-benefit analysis. I have carried out consultancy work staff training n this area for the UK Department for International Development.
I also have an interest in Business Economics, and teach in that area on our MBA programmes and have a long record of consultancy at home and overseas.
Expertise & Capabilities
- Environmental economics
- Energy Economics
- Applied Econometrics
I have extensive experience in the economic appraisal of projects, programmes and policies. This includes the application of appraisal techniques to environmental and energy projects (also one of my teaching interests, and is an area in which I have co-authored a leading graduate level textbook) and appraisal of projects in developing economy contexts. I have extensive experince of consultancy work for DFID (the UK Department of International Development) in this latter area.
With respect to Applied Econometrics, I work collaboratively with Professor Christophe Tavera at the university of Rennes I in France, a university with which I am a Visiting Professor. (Univ Rennes 1, European University Bretagne, University of Rennes 1, CNRS, Inst Phys Rennes, UMR 6251). My work with Professor Tavera currently focusses on Okun's Law. This is also an area in which I suprervise PhD students.
I am very happy to supervise PhD doctoral students in reserach in any of these fields of study.
