Cherry named senior research fellow at Center for International Climate and Environmental Research-Oslo
BOONE—Todd L. Cherry, professor of economics at Appalachian State University, has been appointed a senior research fellow at the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research-Oslo (CICERO). CICERO, a research center associated with the University of Oslo in Norway, has been an international leader since 1990 in conducting research and providing information on climate change and climate policy.
CICERO has nearly 80 researchers from a range of disciplines including anthropology, atmospheric chemistry, meteorology, geophysics, human geography, sociology, biology, chemistry, political science and economics. The organization has many scientists contributing to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 5th Assessment Report, among them six lead authors and one coordinating lead author.
CICERO cooperates with a number of research communities throughout Europe and North America, and has active research networks in several developing countries, including China and India.
Cherry regularly visits CICERO in Oslo, including spending time in residence during the summer. He recently worked with Dave McEvoy, a colleague in Appalachian’s Department of Economics, and Jon Hovi, a colleague at CICERO and professor of political science at the University of Oslo, to organize a workshop on international climate policy. The two-day workshop, part of a larger book project, brought together leading researchers from Columbia University, University of California-Santa Barbara, Resources for the Future and the University of Bath, among others. The workshop was sponsored by CICERO, University of Oslo and Appalachian.
