Prof. Enrica De Cian is associate professor in environmental economics at Ca’ Foscari Unversity of Venice (Italy) since December 2017, an ERC Starting Grant grantee with the project ENERGYA – Energy use for Adaptation, and research scientist at Fondazione Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici (CMCC), Italy. Her research focuses on the global impacts of climate change on the economy, the society, and sustainable development. She uses methods from economic growth, environmental economics, applied economics, and climate science. She uses integrated assessment models to study how human and natural systems could interact under future changing climate and economy. She applies econometric approaches to historical data to understand how human and natural systems have coped with observed changes in the past. Secondary research interests include technological change, the role of institutions in the transition toward sustainable development. She has collaborated with several research organizations in Europe (CEPS, ZEW) and in the US (JP at MIT, Boston University). In 2012 she was awarded a Marie Curie Research Fellowship for the project DYNAMIC through which she started to collaborate with Prof. Ian Sue Wing from the Department of Earth and Environment at Boston University on the empirical analysis of climate change impacts in agriculture and energy. She has been involved in several international projects and initiatives. She has published in the fields of climate change economics, integrated assessment modeling, energy economics, and environmental and resource economics.
