Portrett av Daniel Dean Moran

Daniel Moran is an environmental economist whose work quantifies the biophysical resources used by the economy. He is an active contributor to global multi-region input-output models (MRIOs) which provide digital twins of the world economy and are used to generate Scope 3 carbon footprint results. Dr. Moran also works with Scope 1 GHG emissions models. His work using data science to develop high-resolution environmental footprints has been featured in National Geographic, the New York Times, and The Economist.

Before starting his academic career Dr. Moran worked on Wall Street pricing ESG risk at MSCI and assisted Nobel laureate Paul Romer writing a Principles of Economics textbook.
