Biography
Research Scientist and Fellow, Computation Institute, University of Chicago and Argonne National Lab

Areas of Interest:

* Integrated assessment and economic modeling, primarily CGE and PE
* Land use cover and change modeling
* Large scale computation and ensemble simulation

Dr. Elliott works on a variety of topics at the interface of climate change and economics through a variety of applied modeling and computational projects. He has experience with CGE modeling and currently runs several projects designed to improve integrated assessment models through improved representations of industries, production factors (labor and capital), resource usage and availability, improving the treatment of intraregional consumption patterns and the implied distributional impacts of climate change, improving representations of biofuel and co-product production and the impact on agriculture, and characterizing climate change impacts to industry production functions in terms of the physical effects (as opposed to arbitrarily monetized damage functions).

Dr. Elliott received his PhD in high-energy theoretical particle physics from McGill University in 2008. He has been with the Computation Institute since 2009.
