Author Biography

Lukas Beck, Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change, Germany

Lukas Beck obtained his Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge. He is currently a member of the Scientific Assessments, Ethics, and Public Policy working group at the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (MCC) in Berlin, where he works on the FORMAS-funded Rivet project (with Lund University) on ‘Risk, values, and decision-making in the economics of climate change.’ His research focuses on economic methodology, the intersection between economics and cognitive science, and the normativity of the sciences. What unifies these interests is a desire to understand better what it means to make justified decisions in complex scenarios and what this implies for how we should live together.
