Biography

Silvia Ferrini joined CSERGE for the first time in July 2007as a Senior Research Associate. She is an applied economist (MSc Environmental Economics, University of Siena -Italy; PhD Applied Statistics, University of Florence, Italy) who worked for valuing water quality improvements under the Aquamoney (EU-F6) and the ChREAM project. Her main task was modelling consumer preference data using different evaluation methods. She was also involved in a research project aimed at valuing environmental related risks through the value of statistical life index. In 2009 Silvia joined the University of Siena as Lecturer in Economics (with tenure from 2012).

In March 2012, Silvia was in sabbatical leave and joined again CSERGE for working at the UK-NEA II and Natural Capital Committee projects.
