Personal profile

Research interests

Beginning my working life as an economist in the UK Government Department of Environment, I have specialised in the Economics of the Environment at the University of Bath since 1998.  My research is applied and relates directly to the formulation of environmental policy.  I primarily work with inter-disciplinary research teams in Europe and around the world, and, for large donor organisations including the EC, OECD, World Bank and UNEP.  I recently co-ordinated the EC DG Research project: Economics of climate change adaptation in Europe (ECONADAPT).

Current areas of interest include climate change risks, adaptation and mitigation in local and national contexts, and; non-market valuation, with focus on stated preference methods and value transfer.

Current Research projects:

  • Wellcome Trust: Moving health and sustainability upstream into strategic urban development decision-making.
  • Urban Land Institute/New Climate Economics: Supporting Smart Urban Growth: Successful Investing in Density.
  • OECD: Socio-Economic Analysis of Chemicals: quantification and monetisation of morbidity and environmental impacts. 

My research is in Environmental Economics and my two main areas of research interest are Non-Market Valuation and Project/Policy Appraisal in the context of climate adaptation. Specific areas of interest include the following:

Non-Market Valuation:

  • Monetary valuation of disutility associated with morbidity and premature mortality
  • Energy and Transport-related externalities, including energy security
  • Green Accounting methods and applications
  • Monetary valuation of ecosystems
  • Economics of Crime

Project/Policy Appraisal:

  • Cost-Benefit Analysis
  • Portfolio analysis and Real Options analysis in Climate Change context  

I am Research Co-ordinator for the Department of Economics.
