His research work at IIASA will focus on developing agent-based models to understand aspects of natural disasters and climate risk in low-income countries, and looking at relationships between financialization and flood risk in high income countries. In additional to this, Dr. Naqvi works on stock-flow consistent macro models to investigate the relationship between growth, climate change, and inequality in a global context, understanding drivers of technological progress and linkages between trade, emissions, and climate policies between the global north and the global south.
In the past, Dr. Naqvi has collaborated on projects in the fields of development, migration, institutions, economic geography and economic history with the World Bank, Harvard Kennedy School, MIT, University of Chicago, University of Sussex, University of London, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and IIASA.
