Anne Nobel works on the economic valuation of climate change impacts on ecosystem services. He will use data collected from a state-of-the-art climate simulator, the Ecotron facility (http://www.uhasselt.be/UH/FieldResearchCentre/Infrastructure/ECOTRON-Hasselt-University.html) near National Park Hoge Kempen (Belgium) to establish the impact of our future climate on several ecosystem services: climate regulation, recreation and water purification. Subsequently, he will monetize these economic impacts, among others by using an integrated assessment model (in collaboration with MIT) and non-market valuation techniques.
Before he started his PhD he worked for several years in a consulting firm on cost-benefit analysis projects. He obtained his master degree from Delft University of Technology and his bachelor degree from University of Twente (the Netherlands).
