Alessandro Taberna is a PhD candidate at the Department of Multi Actor Systems, Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management, at the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. He received a Master’s degree in Economics (awarded Cum Laude) from the University of Torino, Italy. He developed his passion for research in complex economic systems while completing  his Master thesis entitled “Brexit, Labour and Migration: an Agent-Based Model”. He worked as a financial analyst  for the European Investment Bank  in the Risk Management department.

Within the ‘Center for Social Complexity of Climate Change’ he works on developing agents based models  and on modeling cross-scale processes and integration between behaviorally-rich agent-based models and macro-economic equilibrium models. In particular, his current research focuses on how the autonomous adaptation of interacting heterogeneous households and firms affects regional climate-induced damages and socio-economic resilience.

In his free-time he enjoys playing electronic music, cooking mediterranean food and playing football. He has an affinity for the great outdoors, he regularly hikes and is an avid snowboarder.
