Student Profile

Jacob Wellman

A specific focus on applied economics - particularly in regards to climate change and the environment - drew me to LSE. The deep expertise of the teaching staff helped convince me it was the right place to study environmental economics. My course allows me to apply a rigorous economic skill set to interesting policy questions of the day.

Access to the world’s experts in climate economics allows me to get a really clear picture of what the big issues are in the field I am studying. I plan to continue my studies after graduation specifically looking at the impact of renewable energy policies on the electricity market in US states.
