Areas of Expertise and Research
Economic Analysis and Assessment of Water Scarcity, Hydrologic-Economic Modeling
PhD-Student within the UFZ Integrated Project (IP) Water Scarcity:
- Modeling of economic costs and damages in the agricultural sector: Coupling of spatio-temporally distributed output units of the mesoscale Hydrologic Model (mHM; Samaniego, Kumar & Attinger, 2010) with various crop yields using econometric methods.
- The coupling serves as basis for socio-economic analysis and assessment of soil moisture as production factor in the agricultural sector.
- This project is a mutual and interdisciplinary approach of the Departments Economics and CHS
- Tutorial: Sustainability and Development Economics
- Seminar: Socio-economic Aspects of Sustainability
- Tutorial: Economic Valuation, Cost-Benefit and Risk Analysis
- Seminar: Special Topics in Environmental and Resource Economics
- Seminar: Ecological Economics
- Tutorial: Models in Environmental and Ecological Economics
- Seminar: Principals in Environmental Policy
- Seminar: Environmental Management 1
