Background and activities

I am a postdoctoral researcher studying environmental impacts embedded in international trade flows. 

My current area of specialization is the design and use of high-resolution global economic-biophysical MRIO tables that track thousands of goods and commodities flowing through billions of trade and transformation steps to reach end users. These resource accounts are used to calculate accurate carbon, water, land, material, and biodiversity footprints, and to quantify how a remote ecological shock may propagate through supply chains to affect a particular country or sector. Assembling these global resource accounts is data and calculation intensive so much of my work involves programming for cluster and supercomputer systems. 
Results from my research have appeared in NatureNature Climate Change and PNAS and have been used in projects for McKinsey, Deloitte, the European Commission, OECD, UN, IMF, and World Bank.
