Research

My research focuses on societal and energy metabolism of societies, within the framework of ecological economics. I am a member of 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, and I work in the following projects:
