Through my research, I am at contributing to the advancement of macroeconomic theory and policy that helps understand and address key challenges of society today. I analyse systemic drivers of climate change and ecological crisis, inequality and instability as well as the interconnection of these phenomena. On that basis, I scrutinise and develop ideas for a social-ecological transformation of both economics and the economy, including but not limited to post-growth and degrowth approaches. proposals. I am particularly interested in just ways of reducing carbon emissions and resource extraction, alternative models of ownership, and monetary and financial policy.
I am excited to contribute to the development of new economic thinking and be part of several groups and networks with a similar aim, e.g.
- the Economics and Policy for Sustainability Research Group
- the Applied Institute of Research in Economics
- the international Post-Growth Economics Network (PEN)
- the Scientific Working Group on Sustainable Money
