About Michele Graziano Ceddia
I have a PhD in Environmental Economics and my main research interests are in the area of ecological economics and political ecology. I currently work on the issue of agricultural expansion as the main cause of deforestation in the Global South (with a strong focus on Latin America). I am particularly interested in understanding the environmental impacts of inequality, in its various manifestation, and what institutions and governance can do to improve the outcomes.
