Nicolas Schneider is a 3rd-year PhD doctoral candidate in the Department of Earth & Environment at Boston University (BU), Massachusetts, United States. Native from France, Nicolas holds a MSc in Development Economics & Applied Econometrics at Paris Sorbonne University (France) and a MSc in Environmental Economics & Climate Change from the London School of Economics & Political Science (UK), with a major in resource extraction modelling, energy economics and environmental policy. Nicolas’ doctoral work involves: (i) large-scale processing of high-resolution time- and spatially downscaled meteorological data and air column-averaged satellite measurements, (ii) coupling the resulting processed data to records of various impact endpoints,  (iii) projecting mid- and end-century climatically driven changes in economic, energy, and agriculture outcomes, by integrating an ensemble of global climate model outputs simulated under the Coupled Model Intercomparison Phase VI (CMIP6), into econometrically-structured estimation equations calibrated via historical responses. In parallel, Nicolas has been involved in several missions, such as co-chair of the Workshops and Panels Working Group of the BU Science Policy Group, Fellow at the New York City’s Mayor Office of Climate, and Teaching Fellow in the Dept. of General Education at Harvard University (Cambridge, MA).
