Dr Emmanouil Tyllianakis


I joined the Sustainability Research Insitute (SRI) in 2019 and I am currently working in two Horizon 2020 projects (CONSOLE and DRYvER). My work helps with furthering the socio-economic impact of land/water management decisions. My work moves along these two research lines: 1) Understanding how human behaviour impacts water ecosystems and human welfare in return and 2) Capturing the implications of climate change and over-exploitation of resources in economic terms and how this can be linked to perceptions.

Prior to joining SRI I worked as an Environmental Economist for Defra’s Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) in the UK. There I was involved in projects in the Carribean region, South-East Asia and Europe spanning from the economic valuation of costs from hurricanes, to the value of cultural ecosystem services and the value of mitigation for marine plastic pollution.
