Luis Sarmiento


I am a doctoral candidate from the Berlin School of Economics, currently working as a research associate in two different institutions: the department of environment, energy, and transportation of the German Insitute of Economic Research (DIW Berlin) and the Hertie School of Governance. 

My research focus is on environmental and energy economics, specifically on the ongoing transition of energy systems towards renewable technologies, and the analysis of anthropogenic externalities as air pollution, weather, and energy infrastrucutre on health, productivity, well-being and other areas of human affairs.

To study the effects of anthropogenic externalities on humans, I specialize in econometric methods, particularly panel data, Instrumental variable, and time-series models, while to analyze the transition of energy systems towards fossil-free technologies, I make use of numeric bottom-up techno-economic models. Additionally, I also have expertise in coding (R, Python), data mining, and big data

Research Interests: Applied Econometrics, Environmental Economics, Energy Economics, Labor Economics, Health Economics, Energy Modelling, Technological Transition.
