Inga completed her Master’s Degree in Sustainability Science and Technology at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) in Barcelona, working on institutional barriers in coastal management for climate change adaptation. In 2019, she started her PhD in the group of Event-based modeling of economic impacts of Climate Change at PIK. In her PhD project she works on the socio-economic dimension of river floods, analyzing direct losses and distributional effects of disaster impacts and their attribution to climate change. Her work is embedded in the SLICE project (Short- and Long-Term Impacts of Climate Extremes).
