Dr. Felix Meier

Environmental Economist / German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv)

Felix Meier works as an Environmental Economist at the Kiel Institute for the World Economy. He studied Economics in Augsburg und Kiel and received his PhD in Environmental and Resource Economics from Kiel University in 2020. Before his employment at the Kiel Institute he worked at the German Centre for integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) Halle-Jena-Leipzig. His research focuses on carbon prices. In a recently published article he investigates how the introduction of a national carbon tax would have changed the temporal pattern of U.S. shale gas extraction.

Currently he explores the economic potential of Climate Engineering (i.e. technologies that could be used to mitigate anthropogenic climate change) and studies their impact on the optimal carbon tax.
