PhD Seminar (Econ)
Date & time
Climate change, infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) are three complex challenges the world currently faces. My thesis focuses on modelling macroeconomic consequences of these challenges. The first section combines three studies conducted to evaluate macroeconomic consequences of infectious diseases, using COVID-19 as a case-study, and plausible policy responses to manage the pandemic and support economic recovery. The second section explores macroeconomic consequences of physical climate risks and particularly the responsiveness of financial markets to climate-related extreme events. The third section outlines several studies contributing to identify AMR risk factors, evaluate their contribution to AMR evolution and macroeconomic consequences of AMR escalation.
