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.
