Anne-Sophie Crépin is an environmental and resource economist focusing on resources and services that stem from ecosystems
Anne-Sophie Crépin has a background in environmental and resource economics and focuses on issues related to sustainability and resilience.
Her research links scientific theories about the Anthropocene, regime shifts and economic dynamics and aims to answer mainly two broad questions:
1. In what way does the interplay between ecosystems and socioeconomic dynamics influence the risk of abrupt changes which could lower human well-being?
2. How can society deal with this risk in a way that sustains long term human well-being?
A substantial part of her work is based on small theoretical dynamic models that combine relevant economic factors with complex ecosystem dynamics. Recent publications also include more empirical studies and behavioural experiments.
Her work addresses management of resources with potential regime shifts like grasslands, coral reefs, forests, etc. She has studied models with common property management, fast and slow dynamics, uncertainty, diversity and policy interventions. Her recent work deals with the representation of larger and complex social ecological systems with cross scale interactions like the Arctic Ocean.
Anne-Sophie Crépin teaches within the module Challenges of Environmental Decision-making within the Stockholm Resilience Centre’s Master’s Programme Social-Ecological Resilience for Sustainable Development.
She is the deputy director of the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics, where she has har main affiliation. She was a council member for the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economics. She participated in the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment.
