Florian Klaus Diekert
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oslo. I'm affiliated with NorMER and CEES (Department of Biology), and the Department of Economics. My work centers around humans and their inter-relations with the social and natural environment under a changing climate.
More specifically, I intend to follow two main questions/approaches within NorMER. First, I ask how the potential threat of catastrophic shifts in the resilience of natural resources influences the strategic interaction between non-cooperative agents. Second, I ask how investment in fleet capacity is influenced by variations in the natural resource stock. In particular, I want to investigate how investment behavior is directly affected by the prospects of future profits and by the expected variation of future profits as well as indirectly through the endogenous formation of preferences such as the attitude towards risk and uncertainty.
I was born in Hamburg and grew up in Tuebingen. I studied International Relations in Dresden and Economics in Oslo. In October 2011, I completed my PhD in Economics under the supervision of Kjell Arne Brekke and Nils Christian Stenseth.
