PostDoc Prof. Perino
Maximilian is a PostDoc at the Chair of Environmental Economics. He obtained a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Hamburg for his thesis “Reforming Emissions Trading – Abatement, Investment and Regulatory Uncertainty“ in December 2018. In 2016 he spent three months a visiting graduate student at the Grantham Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, London School of Economics.
During his studies, he was an intern for the German Foreign Office in Berlin and the ThyssenKrupp AG in Dortmund.
Besides his primary inquiries concerning environmental economics, Maximilian enriches his research with findings from behavioural, climate, institutional and resource economics. Within this context, the impacts of different uncertainties in the economic system on boundedly rational market participants and their decision-making are of particular interest to him.
