Asjad Naqvi


Welcome to my personal website. I am currently based in Vienna, Austria where I am working as a Senior Economist at the Austrian Institute for Economic Research (WIFO), and as an Assistant Professor at the Institute for Ecological Economics, Department of Socioeconomics, Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU). From 2011-2013, I was the Research Director at the Center for Economic Research in Pakistan (CERP). I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the New School for Social Research (New York) (2007-2012) and my Habilitation in Economics in 2020. Prior to 2007, I was based at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) working on various research projects.

My current research work is at the intersection of developing climate models, diagnostic tools, decision support tools, climate analytics, and data science. I have worked on topics of climate-finance interactions, climate change, cascading impact of climate shocks, input-output relationships, and .distributional impacts. I work with macroeconomic models, agent-based models, and have a deep interest in development of causal inference methods and their application to climate-related problems. I code extensively in Stata and Mathematica and have good knowledge of several softwares. I regularly blog data science topics on Medium and actively post on Twitter/X.
