Hi there, I am Emil Dimanchev and I am a researcher specializing in climate and energy policy. My work aims to address timely decarbonization challenges and inform climate policy design. In my research work, I leverage a diverse set of methods matched to the problem at hand, with a focus on quantitative techno-economic models. I currently work at the MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research where my research covers energy policy issues including deep decarbonization and renewable energy policy.
I have served as a consultant to government officials on carbon pricing policy and spent five years as a carbon market analyst at Thomson Reuters (now Refinitiv), where my research contributed to the reform of the European Emission Trading System. I have provided policy analyses and forecasts on European and global carbon pricing systems to governments, Members of the European Parliament, and Fortune Global 500 companies. My research has been featured in policy hearings in the EU Parliament and Commission and quoted in the media including the BBC, Wall Street Journal, Guardian, Politico, Reuters, CarbonBrief, Climate Home, Carbon Pulse, and others.
I hold a M.Sc. degree from the MIT Technology and Policy Program and a B.A. degree in Mathematical Economics from Colorado College.
