My primary research interest involves the assessment of the economic and environmental effects of bio-fuel and energy policies, environmental taxation and trade on the economy and environmental (transboundary pollution) systems.
Secondly, given that the debate of biofuels mainly centres on biofuels vs food, am also currently interested in understanding ri-localization of production-consumption relationships in agriculture looking at scenarios, effects and policies under a macro-perspective.
Thirdly, am also interested in understanding the environmental and economic consequences of extreme events such as landslides and how vulnerability of such events affects both the economy and the environment of weak economies such as Developing Countries or Small Islands States.
Previously, my research works focused on the links between environmental quality and economic growth investigating, in particular, issues for the Environmental Kuznets Curve.
