|PhD student at IoES studying the effects of climate variability and change on the ‘pelagic complex’ (Atlanto-Scandian herring, blue whiting and mackerel) in the Northeast Atlantic using bio-economic modeling. Socio-economic implications of changes in these fisheries are studied further for (i) Iceland in a general equilibrium framework, and (ii) in a multinational context by employing game theoretical tools.|
