Climate Change Intensifies Inequality: An Interview with Gregor Semieniuk (Global Policy)

Gregor Semieniuk (Ph.D., Economics, New School for Social Research, 2015) is Assistant Research Professor at PERI and the Department of Economics at UMass Amherst. His research focuses on the energy and resource requirements of global economic growth and on the political economy of rapid, policy-induced structural change that is required for the transition to a low carbon economy. In the former project, Gregor harnesses historical data to critique IPCC and other scenarios of future economic growth and climate change mitigation that rely strongly on energy efficiency measures to both grow fast and deliver unprecedented energy savings. In the latter Gregor examines the role of government and private investors in financing the investments required for rapid low carbon energy transitions as well as the impact of mitigation policy on the financial system. Gregor also has a keen interest in the measurement and characterisation of inequality, in particular as it applies to the ongoing low-carbon transition. Gregor is currently on leave from his Lecturer (Assistant Professor in the UK system) position at the Department of Economics of SOAS University of London. He is also affiliated with the Institute of Innovation and Public Policy Purpose at University College London and the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) of the University of Sussex.
