About me

Thomas’s research focuses on the extraction behaviour of fossil fuel resource owners, using a combination of intertemporal optimisation theory and econometric models.

The aim of his research is to expand knowledge of fossil fuel supply side effects on greenhouse gas mitigation, in an effort to construct effective policy instruments to combat climate change.


Thomas holds a BSc (Polit) in Economics from the University of Copenhagen and an MSc Environmental Economics and Climate Change from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
