I investigate how the evolution of the world trade network could increase the resilience of our society toward extreme climate events. My research links the Input Output modelling framework with the climate research community and aims at producing policy-relevant insights about the link between climate change and international trade. I'm also interested in the place of raw materials, energy and technological change in the transition toward a sustainable economy.
