Veronika Stolbova is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Banking and Finance of the University of Zurich and holds a PhD in theoretical physics. Her expertise lies in the empirical and theoretical analysis of climate variability, climate risks and treatment of big data applications. Her current research focuses on the application of network theory to interactions among institutions and the impacts of climate change on the financial system and market players. This work applies a climate stress test framework to analysis of the impact of climate change on the financial system. She is also contributing to the H2020 program ISIGrowth, related to social and economic dynamics and policy implications, and the Carbon Bubble project, aimed at estimating climate-related risks for the euro area economy.
