Emilien Ravigné

Postdoctoral researcher in Economics

INET, Oxford University


I am a postdoctoral researcher in Environmental Economics at the University of Oxford.

I study the conditions for a fair transition, mainly in France and the UK. My work assesses the distributional impacts of net zero policies on households and how green technical change and climate policies impact productivity, labour and capital, hence the distribution of income.

I am based at INET, the Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School and the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment. I am working on the PRINZ project for a productive and inclusive net zero in the UK, since January 2023.

I hold a PhD in Economics from Université Paris-Saclay ( CentraleSupélec, LGI) and CIRED and a Master in Engineering from Ecole Centrale Paris. You can download my PhD thesis from here.
