My research work is in the areas of Agricultural and Ecological Economics and Environmental Modelling. The workhorse tools for my studies include regression and Multi-Regional Input-Output modelling for the purposes of economic and environmental impact assessment, forecasting and policy prescriptions. My PhD thesis is a global analysis of trade-related emissions (GATE) with a special focus on the agricultural sector, especially the livestock sector and meat products. International trade constitutes a significant fraction of the rising of global GHG emissions. Consumption of meat products which require the intensive use the some of the earth's resources while driving global emissions makes a strong case for accounting for ecological footprint beyond national borders. Consequently, it is plausible to consider emissions embodied in trade in the broader scheme of global climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies. My study is in two folds; on the national (Denmark) and the global scales. For Denmark, I use a special Danish CGE local interregional economic (LINE) model to evaluate both production and consumption based emissions associated with the Danish livestock sector. I am supervised by Prof. Marianne Thomsen and Dr Dario Caro.
