Claudia Wieners

Claudia Wieners obtained her PhD in climate physics in 2018 from Utrecht University (Netherlands). After that, she studied geoengineering, including a cost-benefit analysis of sulphate geoengineering in the DICE model. Currently, she is a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Economics of Sant’Anna, Pisa (Italy) and works on agent-based models of climate economics.
