Anshuman Tiwari, University of California, Santa Barbara


I am an economist currently on an off-market postdoctoral fellowship at the Bren School at UC Santa Barbara. I completed my PhD from the LSE in 2022, where I was affiliated with the Grantham Research Institute and the STICERD EEE program.

My JMP finds that that targeting urban sources like vehicles to reduce localized pollution yields much larger GDP gains than targeting rural sources like agricultural fires to also reduce some urban pollution, while holding health benefits fixed.

In my research, I seek to study the interactions between economic growth and environmental change in low and middle income countries, particularly the role of policy in enabling people and firms to mitigate or adapt to environmental damage.
