Enrica De Cian is associate professor in environmental economics at Ca’ Foscari Unversity of Venice (Italy) since December 2017 and ERC Starting Grant grantee with the project ENERGYA – Energy use for Adaptation. Before she was researcher at Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) and Fondazione Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici (CMCC), Italy.

Her research focuses on the global impacts of climate change on the economy, the society, and sustainable development by using econometric and modelling approaches. She combines different methods and disciplines, specifically economic growth, environmental economics, geography, environmental and climate science. She relies on integrated assessment models to study how human and natural systems could interact under future changing climate and economy. She applies econometric approaches to historical data to understand how human and natural systems have coped with observed changes in the past.
