Antony Millner is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at UCSB. An overarching question his research often deals with is: "How can we make good long-run decisions about global environmental risks, and what prevents us from making them?" Millner works on a variety of applied theory topics in economics, often with a focus on environmental applications. Current research topics include intertemporal choice and discounting, decision-making under uncertainty, the economics of climate change and other long-run global risks, and political and behavioural economics.
He is a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research, an affiliate of the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, a Senior Research Associate at the Global Priorities Institute at Oxford University, and a Fellow of the CESIfo Research Network. Prior to joining UCSB he was a research professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science. He received his D.Phil. (PhD) from Oxford University, and has first class Masters degrees from Cambridge University and the University of Cape Town.
