Dr Georgina Santos
Languages spoken: English, Spanish
I am interested in environmental and transport economics. I have conducted research on the role of governments in the internalisation of externalities, with a focus on air pollution, global warming, and traffic congestion.
About my research
My current research falls under three themes:
1. Emission trading in the road transport sector in the EU; 2. Harmonisation of transport taxes and duties, to include all modes across all EU countries; 3. Congestion charging.
