Trade, Environment, Development and Energy Research Group

The Trade, Environment, Development and Energy (TEDE) Research Group is primarily an applied economics and econometrics and applied theory group that does research at the intersection between the four related research areas of international economics, development economics, environmental economics and energy economics.

We also encourage interdisciplinary research that encompasses environmental science, development studies, engineering, international business, computer science, regional studies, human geography, international political economy and area studies.

Specific topics include trade and the environment, energy systems, natural disasters, African development, labour share, institutional economics, the global value chain, the Chinese and Indian economies, the exporting and importing behaviour of firms, spatial econometrics, economics of climate change, the environmental behaviour of firms and much more.
