Ina is pursuing a PhD in environmental economics at LSE and is funded through a Grantham Research Institute PhD scholarship. Her research focuses on climate change adaptation and in particular the role of innovation in climate change adaptation. By using quasi-experimental approaches, Ina hopes to produce empirical research that will guide policy makers into making informed decisions. She is passionate about reducing the unequal impacts of climate change through her research.


Ina holds an undergraduate degree in economics from the University of Cambridge and a Master in Public Policy from UCLA. This allows her to connect economic theory to practical policy making and take a comprehensive approach to climate issues.
During her studies at UCLA, Ina worked at the Luskin Centre for Innovation. She received the merit-based David and Marianna Fisher Fellowship and Luskin Graduate Fellowship. In addition, Ina was awarded the UCLA Luskin departmental awards for leadership and service, teaching excellence and academic achievement.
