Jordi Teixidó is a post-doctoral researcher at the European University Institute in Florence (Italy), where he is affiliated with the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies as part of the Florence School of Regulation-Climate group.
His research interests lie at the intersection between inequality economics and environmental economics. From a macro point of view, he is interested in disentangling how the current global economy shapes natural resource distribution among countries, and in turn, how this natural resource distribution shapes global environmental governance and economic development.
In a more micro perspective, his research interests include ex-post policy evaluation, again with a special emphasis on distributional impacts from environmental policies. One question of particular relevance in this area is the analysis of how environmental policies (carbon taxation and emissions trading systems) differentially impact households according to their economic status.
He arrived at the EUI as a Max Weber fellow and holds a Ph.D. in Economics from the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Spain), a M.Sc. in Industrial Organization from the same university and a BA in economics from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
