Competence and research areas

The analysis of sustainability aspects of the global transition to a green economy is at the core of Kirsten's research. She is an expert in global and national macro-econometric input-output modelling, an elected member of the Council of the International Input-Output Association, and a member of the Editorial Board of the journal "Economic Systems Research". Previously she has been working at NTNU's Industrial Ecology Programme, at the OECD in the Trade in Value Added initiative, and at the Institute of Economic Structures Research in Germany. She holds a PhD from UNU-MERIT in Maastricht for her thesis "Quantitative assessment of sustainable development and growth in Sub-Saharan Africa".
Her work was a major contribution to the ILO's "World Employment Social Outlook 2018: Greening with jobs" and the Inter-American Development Bank's 2020 report "Jobs in a net-zero emissions future in Latin America and the Caribbean". Her research continues to provide background information for UNFCCC's work on climate change response measures, esp. regarding impacts on global sustainability and cross-border effects, and the UNDP's NDC partnership.
