Chris Hope

Chris Hope

Emeritus Reader in Policy Modelling
Fellow of Clare Hall

BA (University of Oxford), MA, PhD (University of Cambridge)

Research interests

Numerical information in public policy; policy analysis of the greenhouse effect; the integrated assessment modelling of climate change.

Subject group: Economics & Policy

Professional experience

Dr Hope was the specialist advisor to the House of Lords Select Committee on Economic Affairs Inquiry into aspects of the economics of climate change, and an advisor on the PAGE model to the Stern review on the Economics of Climate Change.

His research interests involve numerical information in public policy and the integrated assessment modelling of climate change, and he has published extensively in books and peer-reviewed journals. He has completed PAGE09, the latest version of the PAGE integrated assessment model, and is now using it to investigate and publish papers on climate change policies in developed and developing countries. The model has also been used by the US EPA to develop estimates of the social cost of carbon.

Previous appointments

Dr Hope previously lectured at the Department of Fuel and Energy, University of Leeds, from 1983-1986.

Awards & honours

  • A lead author and review editor for the Third and Fourth Assessment Reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which was awarded a half share of the Nobel Peace Prize, 2007
  • Faculty Lifetime Achievement Award from the European Academy of Business in Society and the Aspen Institute, 2007
