I study the Political Economy of Risk and Uncertainty, with empirical focus on the fields of energy and, separately, carbon markets. The common link being that I use transaction costs to understand how organisations in either field deal with uncertainty.

On occasion, I also ramble about the theory(ish) of risk/uncertainty.
