Eduardo Souza-Rodrigues is an assistant professor of Economics at the University of Toronto since 2013. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Economics at Yale University in 2012. After that, he became a post-doc fellow at Harvard University for one year.
Eduardo Souza-Rodrigues' research agenda lies at the intersection of Environmental Economics and Structural Dynamic Models. It focuses on problems related to tropical deforestation, especially on the Amazon rainforest, and on the performance of existing and yet-to-be-implemented conservation policies. Evaluating yet-to-be-implemented policies necessarily involves counterfactual analysis based on economic behavioral models. Eduardo's second research area is dedicated to the questions of when, and under what conditions, counterfactual predictions are identified in structural dynamic models (which have been extensively used in applied work).
