Welcome to my site!
My name is Aleksandra Conevska, and currently I am a PhD student in the Department of Government at Harvard University. I am also a graduate fellow at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science and the Harvard University Sustainability Transparency Accountability Research (STAR) Lab.
I am passionate about developing solutions to address climate change, which has driven me to research the political economy of climate change, energy, and environmental degradation. Within this broad agenda, I am interested in understanding inter-generalization mobilization, the "losers" of decarbonization policies, the relationship between environmental disasters and individual preferences/actions, and when and how societies adapt to climate change.
My previous research has focused on the relationship between international trade, preferential trade agreements (PTAs), and natural disasters, the status of global food system adaptation, the institutional design and capacity of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), as well as University level fossil fuel divestment patterns.
My research has been published in journals including International Studies Quarterly, Climate Policy, Climate and Development and Energy Research & Social Science.
