Shouro Dasgupta


I am an environmental economist at Fondazione CMCC and EIEE, and a lecturer at Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia. Originally from Bangladesh, I have studied in the US before moving to Italy for my PhD.​ My research investigates the impacts of climate change on labour, inequality, human health, food security, energy supply, and migration/displacement using micro and spatial econometrics.​ My work contributes to;

  • advancing knowledge on socioeconomic impacts of climate change
  • identify hotspots and vulnerable population
  • supporting the design of tailored policies to mitigate and adapt to climate impacts   

Teaching is a passion! I teach statistics, economics, and econometrics courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels. I am a voracious reader (would read almost anything) and an amateur photographer. I love traveling with my wife! Currently, we are making our way through northern Italy - one small town at a time.
