Mariia is a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. She holds a PhD (Dr. rer. pol.) in economics from the University of Hamburg (Germany) and the International Max Planck Research School on Earth System Modelling (IMPRS-ESM). Mariia is an environmental economist interested in theories of economic growth, decision-making under uncertainty, and dynamical systems theory. Her particular focus is the design of integrated assessment models of climate and the economy (IAMs). In her PhD dissertation, “Integrated Assessment of Climate Tipping Points”, Mariia explored the structural characteristics of economic impacts of climate change related to climate tipping points and their associated policy implications. She is currently analyzing the role of ethical and empirical economic assumptions in widely applied IAMs when considering the mitigation-solar geoengineering (SG) policy mix.
