He was educated at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Innsbruck and received his PhD in Economics at the University of Cambridge.
Timo’s background as an empirical and experimental environmental economist is instrumental for achieving CAS’s objectives. He is one of its initiators and involved in several aspects of the project. He leads and contributes to Project Theme 2: Fostering community-level climate action. In particular, his research will focus on the determinants of individual climate action: Can active participation in monitoring mobilize pro-environmental behavior? How do the outcomes compare to a situation when emissions information is publicly provided?
