I had the pleasure of being a jury member for the PhD thesis of Can Askan Mavi. Today was Can’s defence of his thesis, entitled “Essays on Environmental Policy under Catastrophic Event Uncertainty”, and it was a pleasure to have been there and  having had the opportunity to discuss the work. I would like to congratulate Can for his nice work and wish him all the best for his future career.He is now moving to SupAgro-INRA in Montpellier for a Postdoc position.

If you are interested in theoretical modelling of the impact of disasters and the relationship to the trade-off between adaptation and mitigation, then I invite you to take a look at his thesis.

The other jury members were Antoine Bommier, Professeur at ETH Zürich, Mouez Fodha, Professeur at Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne, Katrin Millock, Charge de Recherche CNRS at Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne, and Lionel Ragot, Professeur at Paris-Nanterre. The thesis director was Antoine d’Autume, Professeur at Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne.
