As a Summer Intern of the Fund Internship Program, from June to August 2022, I assessed how chronic and extreme physical climate risks could affect a global multisectoral sample of firms under alternative Shared Socioeconomic Pathways and the global macroeconomic consequences of those effects.
Along with Prof. Warwick McKibbin and Dr. Weifeng Liu, from September 2021 to June 2022, I evaluated the macroeconomic consequences of the NGFS climate policy scenarios in the multi-country and multi-sectoral G-Cubed model. Along with three groups of Integrate Assessment Modelers, we also compared the different modeling approaches and the policy insights from those differences.
Along with Prof. Warwick McKibbin and Dr. Weifeng Liu, from December 2021 to March 2022, I evaluated in-depth the macroeconomic consequences of the NGFS climate policy scenarios for Australian states and a wide array of economic sectors.
From November 2021 to March 2022, I constructed a suite of models for nowcasting the Gross Domestic Product of Sri Lanka. The model ensemble includes both conventional nowcasting models as well as modern machine learning algorithms.
