David García-León’s work contributes to study and assess the economic effects of climate change at the global and EU levels, including the cross-sectoral impacts, as well as the effectiveness of alternative adaptation policies.

His research interests span several disciplines, but are always headed to understand the socio-economic effects of the environment on human activities, with a particular focus on low-probability, high-impact climate events.

Previously, he was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change, where he implemented his project WATER DROP on the economic assessment of droughts.

He received a PhD in Quantitative Economics at the University of Alicante (Spain). Before that, he worked at the Research Department of the Bank of Spain and obtained a Master’s Degree in Economics and Finance at CEMFI.
