Silvia Pianta

I am a Junior Scientist (tenure-track) at the RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment. I am currently visiting the Centre for Sustainability of the Hertie School in Berlin. 

My research focuses on environmental policy and politics. In my work, I investigate the determinants of environmental attitudes and policy preferences, the impact of environmental change on political behavior, and the political economy of the environment more broadly.  I am currently the deputy coordinator of the Horizon Europe Project CAPABLE, a collaborative project of 11 institutions across Europe whose key objective is to produce methodological and empirical advances in climate policy evaluation by combining insights from different disciplines. Within the project, I coordinate the work focusing on the political dynamics of climate policy-making.

I  received my Ph.D. in Public Policy from Bocconi University in February 2021. In 2021-2022, I was a Max Weber Postdoctoral Fellow at the European University Institute. From February to August 2018, I was Visiting Student Research Collaborator at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs, working at the Behavioral Science for Policy Lab
