I am an economist based in Vienna, Austria. I am currently working as a Senior Economist at the Austrian Institute for Economic Research (WIFO), and as an Assistant Professor at the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU). Previously, I was a Research Fellow at the International Institute for Applied System Analysis (IIASA) (2017-2020) and the Research Director at the Center for Economic Research in Pakistan (CERP) (2011-2013).

I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the New School for Social Research (New York) (2007-2012) and my Habilitation in Economics from the WU in 2020. Prior to 2007, I was at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) (2004-2007) working on various research projects.

My current research work focuses on developing climate diagnostic tools to evaluate real-financial climate risks. I also work with big data, climate analytics, and developing data science tools. I blog on Medium and I am active on Twitter/X.
