Matti Liski is a professor of economics at the Helsinki School of Economics (HSE) where he teaches general economics as well as environmental, resource, and energy economics (the teacher of the year at HSE in 2009). He was educated in the Finnish doctoral program in economics (FDPE, doctoral degree 1997), including a period at the University of California, Berkeley. Before joining the faculty at HSE, Matti was a senior fellow at the academy of Finland, and a post doc at the MIT economics department. His affiliations include: MIT Center for Energy and Energy Policy Research (MIT-CEEPR), Helsinki Center for Economic Research (HECER), FDPE, Nordic Energy Research program, and CESIfo Munich. He serves as an expert in a government committee on energy and climate strategy, in the scientific council of the ministry of finance, and in the IPCC Finland.

Matti works on three main research topics. First, the work on strategic interactions in resource markets seeks to understand the resource sellers’ response to policy measures targeted at reducing the consumption of the resource on the buyer side. Second, Matti has a long-term interest in the instrument design in environmental markets, and in pollution permit markets in particular. Third, Matti specializes on empirical and theoretical issues in energy markets, including the issues of market power and investments in the energy supply infrastructure.

Matti is an associate editor of Environmental and Resource Economics, and in the editorial boards of Resource and Energy Economics, and Environment and Development Economics.
