Biography

Dr Gregor Semieniuk is a Lecturer in Economics at SOAS, University of London, and the Economics Department's Undergraduate Admissions Tutor. Gregor is also currently Honorary Senior Research Associate at the Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose at UCL and Associate Research Faculty at the Science Policy Unit (SPRU) at the University of Sussex. He is a lead author on UNEP’s 2018 Emission Gap Report on low-carbon innovation policy. Before joining SOAS, he studied the financing of technical change and innovation in the renewable energy industry as a Research Fellow at SPRU on the Horizon 2020 project DOLFINS - Distributed Global Financial Systems for Society. A Foreign Fulbright Fellow, Gregor completed his PhD in Economics at the New School for Social Research in New York City, where part of his research informed the modelling of energy in aggregate economic growth for the INET-funded project Growth, Distribution and Stability.

Current research projects study the drivers of low carbon investment, the energy intensity of economic growth, both in the world in general and in particular in China during its reform years, and the salience of different inequality measures contingent on the social context.

Research output is listed in the ‘publications’ tab. Additional information is being gradually added to a personal website.
