Who should abate carbon emissions? Optimal climate policy when national preferences determine its implementation

Dr. Ulrike Kornek's research interests are in environmental economics with a focus on international climate policy. She uses analytical and numerical models to study the interaction of various actors with differing interests. At the center of her research are applied game-theoretical models that describe the consquences of different policy instrument and institutions on the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, she analyzes the effect of market-based environmental regulation in the context of the European emission trading scheme.

Ulrike Kornek studied physics at the university of Magdeburg and worked as a PhD student at the Potsdam- Institute for Climate Impact Research. Her work at MCC started after finishing her PhD in environmental economics at the Technische Universität Berlin in 2015.
