Professor Juan Moreno-Cruz is an Associate Professor at the School of Environment, Enterprise and Development at the University of Waterloo. He is also a CESifo Research Affiliate.Prior to his current position, Moreno-Cruz was an Associate Professor in the School of Economics at the Georgia Institute of Technology (2011-2017). He has also been a Visiting Researcher in the Department of Global Ecology of the Carnegie Institution for Science at Stanford University (since 2015); an Advisor for Carnegie Energy Innovation (since 2017), and a Research Associate of Harvard University’s Solar Geoengineering Research Program.
Professor Moreno-Cruz's research focuses on the interaction of energy systems, technological change, and climate policy. His most influential work examines how solar and carbon geoengineering technologies affect climate policy. His most recent work provides novel insights into the process of energy transitions by demonstrating how energy access shapes the organization of the economy in cities and how energy consumption in cities in turn pollutes the local and global environment.
