Dr Antonios Katris
Antonios a Research Associate at the Centre for Energy (CEP) at the University of Strathclyde. His academic background includes studies in both mathematics (at undergraduate level) and economics (at postgraduate level). He holds a PhD (University of Stirling) in environmental economics and his expertise includes analyses using input-output frameworks and computable general equilibrium (CGE) models. He joined CEP in 2015 as a researcher for the EPSRC-funded project ‘Energy Saving Innovations and Economy-wide Rebound Effects’ where his research focus was on the potential economy-wide impacts of energy efficiency improvements. The main body of his work is associated with the wider economic and societal impacts of energy efficiency policies at Scottish and UK level, through different EPSRC Impact Accelerator projects.
In recent times he has expanded his research focus to include decarbonisation of transportation, through solutions such as the roll-out of electric vehicles, industrial decarbonisation and more generally the ‘just’ transition to a low carbon economy.
