Caspar researches the environmental and social implications of using the negative emission technology Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) to meet Paris Agreement greenhouse gas emission targets.

Academic Qualifications

2010-2013: BA Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE). University of Oxford, UK.

Research interests

Caspar uses environmental economic and quantitative methods to explore how the location and scale of BECCS determines environmental trade-offs and co-benefits, as well as to explore what a sustainable BECCS deployment may look like. This involves assessing and quantifying the environmental and social impacts of energy crops in the landscape. Caspar has used these techniques to explore BECCS deployment in both the UK and California.
