Emilie Rosenlund Soysal joined LML as a research fellow in January 2024. Her current research focuses on the economic modelling of disaster risk, tipping points and extinction. She is particularly interested in optimal policies under the presence of absorbing states, the role of discounting, and the adverse consequences of relying on expected utility as the determinant of strategy in dynamic economic systems.
Prior to joining LML, Emilie worked as a doctoral researcher in the group for Public Economics and Climate Finance at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (Germany) while pursuing a doctorate degree in economics at the TU Berlin. Her dissertation revolved around the topic of financial market failures and their impact on investments in the green transition.
Emilie received her master’s degree in Industrial Engineering and Management from Lund University (Sweden). During her studies, she specialized in financial engineering and mathematical modelling. She previously worked in the financial industry with risk management and responsible investment, and also as a research assistant at the Technical University of Denmark, where she participated in international projects on renewable energy policies.
