Research Interests: policy implications of environmental regime shifts, bio-economic modeling
Bruno’s research agenda broadly covers topics in environmental economics and natural resource economics. His research combines issues related to industrial pollution control under international trade, adaptation, uncertainty and risk, game theory, applied econometrics, and the bio-economic modeling of antibiotic use subject to bacterial resistance. His recent work has focused on how environmental policies should be adapted in response to threats of regime shifts such as climate change. Bruno has also tested empirically whether various assumptions adopted in theoretical models match patterns observed in data. He obtained his Ph.D. in economics at the University of Montreal. As a postdoctoral researcher at the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, Bruno’s primary research focus is on the design of fisheries policies to balance conservation, environmental, and economic goals.
