Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

I am interested in supervising students on (almost any) topics in environmental and natural resource economics and policy. I have research experience in environmental policy in dynamic models, the evaluation of market-based policy instruments, the interaction of environmental policy and natural resource use, the economics of energy generation, endogenous technological change and technology diffusion, as well as in the link between skills availability, brain drain and economics growth. I am particularly keen to discuss projects that entail both theoretical and empirical aspects.

Personal profile

Biography

Corrado is a Professor in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics. His broad research interests span environmental and natural resource economics, energy economics, the economics of growth and development as well as technological change. The key feature of his work is an emphasis on both theoretical and empirical aspects, as well as its policy relevance.

Corrado’s most recent research covers several aspects of the interaction between environmental policy and natural resource use, the taxation of exhaustible resources, emissions trading schemes and their efficiency-promoting features, the role of skills in the process of economic growth, and environmental policy in the presence of directed technological change. Students interested in any (or all) of these themes are welcome to get in touch to discuss the possibility of supervision.
