Research

My research focuses on societal and energy metabolism of societies, within the framework of ecological economics. I am a member of Ikiam's research group on Population and Environment, the ICTA Research Group on Energy and integrated environmental assessment, the ICTA Group on Ecological Economics, and the Catalan Government Consolidated Research Group 2014SGR – 0591 Dynamic Multi-Dimmensional Well-Being Assessment.
