I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy at UC Davis, working at the intersection of environmental economics and climate science. My research seeks to improve our understanding of the economic and social impacts of climate change and to better understand our ability to adapt to those impacts. To do this I combine econometric analysis, experimental approaches, climate model output, and economic modeling.
I post on Twitter @ClimateFran about climate change, economics, and science. Contact me at fmoore at ucdavis dot edu.
For the 2022-2023 academic year I am on leave from Davis working as a senior economist at the Council of Economic Advisers
