Asjad Naqvi is a Research Scholar with the IIASA Applied Systems Analysis (ASA) Program, having joined the institute in 2017. From 2013-2019, he was also employed as an Assistant Professor at the Institute for Ecological Economics, Department of Socioeconomics, Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU), and from 2011-2013, he was the Research Director at the Center for Economic Research in Pakistan (CERP). Dr. Naqvi received his PhD in Economics from the New School for Social Research (New York) in 2012, and his Master's in Economics from the Lahore University of Management Sciences in 2004.
His current research work focuses on building stock-flow consistent macro models to understand the relationship between the real and financial economic sectors and their linkages to climate policies and climate finance in high-income regions. These models are also being extended to explore the environment-economy interactions between the global north and the global south especially in relation to trade and investment flows. DR. Naqvi also works with multi-layer networks and agent-based models to look at how climate shocks cascade across economic landscapes via trade and migration networks. This research, which has previously applied to low-income countries, is now being extended to study how exogenous shocks ripple through global value chains.
Over the past 15 years, he has worked on projects in the fields of development, migration, institutions, networks, health and economic history in collaboration with several well-renowned research institutions including the World Bank, Harvard Kennedy School, MIT's Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL), London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and the University of Chicago.
Dr. Naqvi has published in several top economic journals including the Economic Journal, Health Economics, World Development, and the Ecological Economics. He has acquired and worked on grants from the Austrian National Bank's Jubilaumsfonds, the Austrian Climate Research Program (ACRP), FWF, the Oesterreichische Forschungsfoorderungsgesellschaft (FFG), H2020, USAID, DFID, and the UBS Optimus Foundation.
