Between 2012-15 I worked as main researcher in the Global IQ Consortium, an FP7 European project for the quantification of global changes. I represented the Graduate Institute at partner's meetings in Göteborg, Rome, Prague and Toulouse. I produced four deliverables on issues to do with climate regulation and competitiveness, local spillovers of climate change policies, trade policy and emissions, and health impacts of air pollution.
Part of the project was in cooperation with the College of Environmental Sciences and Engineering of Peking University. We designed and implemented different original data collection surveys, and I performed the analysis of the household level data and pollution time series.
From 2014-15 I was involved as researcher on this project financed by the Swiss National Science Foundation, which analyses the costs of adopting technology restrictions to reduce environmental damages in South Africa. The project is in partnership with the University of Cape Town.
I worked on a lab experiment in the field to understand how coal mine workers apply favouritism and discrimination among their peers following ethnic lines or trade union membership.
